group=”Performance Logs and Alerts”
group=”Remote Event Log Management”
group=”Remote Scheduled Tasks Management”
group=”Remote Volume Management”
group=”Remote Desktop”

Set-NetFirewallRule -Name “FPS-ICMP4-ERQ-In” -Enabled true
Set-NetFirewallRule -Name “FPS-ICMP6-ERQ-In” -Enabled true

and voila
