Windows 8 network stuck as Unidentified

Here is a neat problem. I’m experimenting with correcting disjoined client computers in the domain and stumbled across this little issue. I have the client on the same network as the domain. I can ping the domain controller. I attempted to enable Windows PowerShell remoting via command line but recieved the following error:

clip_image001

Take a look at line 5 in the middle: Network connection types on this machine is set to public.

OK, no problem. I go to Network and Sharing Center to change the network type to at least Private so I can enable the remoting. Take a look at this:

clip_image002

The network profile is not clickable. I tried several techniques that I found on the internet. No luck. This was finally what fixed it.

Open PowerShell

Type Test-ComputerSecureChannel

If the response is False then type Test-ComputerSecureChannel –Repair.

If the response is now True, then reboot.
