Remote PowerShell Connection Issues. Error 0x80090311

When attempting to connect to a server endpoint, in certain domain environments or while connected to a Virtual Private Network (VPN) the connection to the PowerShell endpoint is not able to find the correct domain controller if utilizing the login format: domain\username.
