"RPC server is not available"
Posted on 2004-04-14
I recently upgraded my workstation from 2000 to XP, and since the Win 2000 Server Admin tools don't work on XP, I had to uninstall them and install the 2003 Adminpak. Since then, I am having trouble navigatin within the AD Users and Computers. When I try to open a group, it takes forever to open, and when I try to add a user I get the following error:
The program cannot open the required dialog box because it cannot determine whether the computer named "servername.domain.com" is joined to a domain.
I tried connecting to another domain controller, and get the error "The RPC Server is unavailable"
There's no problem with the domain controllers that we are aware of, and other clients are able to use the admin tools without a problem. Any advice would be appreciated.
