Modified ansible windows remoting script
# Configure a Windows host for remote management with Ansible
# -----------------------------------------------------------
#
# This script checks the current WinRM/PSRemoting configuration and makes the
# necessary changes to allow Ansible to connect, authenticate and execute
# PowerShell commands.
#
# Set $VerbosePreference = "Continue" before running the script in order to
# see the output messages.
