Hi
I am getting the above error when i am trying to join a machne on to my network. The same message also pops up if i try to add any domain user as an administrator of his local machine. Before this error was displayed i started getting an error saying "RPC server is unavailable". After this error was displayed services like IIS, Internet Services and DNS were messed up . I restarted the DNS service and the IIS Service and those started functioning properly. But i cannot stop or restart the RPC services. Looking for a solution .......

MS security bulletin MS03-010 refers to this problem.
Have you tried running windows updates on this system?

open a cmd window and issue the following command:
netstat -a -n

if there are hundreds of connections then probably the flow has been exploited already and you will need an antivirus to clean the system

Microsoft's term for not being able to stop/start the RPC Service is "Behavior by design".  Unfortunately a server reboot is the only way I know to restart this service.

What I would suggest is that you review your event viewer and look for an error code for the RPC Service.

For example:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Service Control Manager
Event Category: None
Event ID: 7031
Description:
The Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service terminated unexpectedly.

Then take that error to the Microsoft Knowledge Base at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=fh;EN-US;KBHOWTO and search for the problem.

No doubt you will be told to service pack your server :)
