The installed PowerShell WebAdministration module cannot be imported  into the PowerShell session. System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: Access is denied

Updated December 23, 2016

Overview

After changing the AppInsight for IIS template to Agent Based Polling, the previously working template displays the error:

The installed PowerShell WebAdministration module cannot be imported 
into the PowerShell session. System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: Access is denied 

Environment

SAM 6.2 and later

Cause 

This occurs because of the change in permission that the template now requires. Previously, the PowerShell sessions were run through a specified administrator account but now they are executed in the context of the LocalSystem account which the agent service runs under.

Resolution

 

  1. Open the Orion Web Console.
  2. Go to the AppInsight for IIS application.
  3. Edit the Application Monitor.
  4. Expand Advanced and verify that it is set to Agent. 
  5. Verify that credentials are set to Inherit Credentials From Node.
  6. Click Configure Server.

This allows the LocalSystem account to access the WebAdministration PowerShell Snap-in.
