I also found the error when you try to connect the powershell on which your system is not part of the domain. Make sure you system is part of the domain

New-PSSession : [] Connecting to remote server failed with the following error message : WinRM cannot process the

request. The following error with errorcode 0x80090311 occurred while using Kerberos authentication: There are currently no logon servers

available to service the logon request.

Possible causes are:

-The user name or password specified are invalid.

-Kerberos is used when no authentication method and no user name are specified.

-Kerberos accepts domain user names, but not local user names.

-The Service Principal Name (SPN) for the remote computer name and port does not exist.

-The client and remote computers are in different domains and there is no trust between the two domains.

After checking for the above issues, try the following:

-Check the Event Viewer for events related to authentication.

-Change the authentication method; add the destination computer to the WinRM TrustedHosts configuration setting or use HTTPS transport.

Note that computers in the TrustedHosts list might not be authenticated.

-For more information about WinRM configuration, run the following command: winrm help config. For more information, see the

about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.
