Hi @S_Alad 

The problem is likely caused by a permissions issue, please follow this KB for additional help.

What transport protocol are you attempting to use? If you're using WMI Microsoft has heavily restricted this through recent updates; you'll want to migrate to WinRM assuming that you're keeping your servers updated. Outside of a permissions issue as mentioned by @vzamy the primary issue that folks run into is when they follow an older guide and attempt to use WMI as the transport method.
