Usually, this happens when the rpc server is not available. You should have another error message in your event log.. something else that goes with this one..
there is so many possibilities that goes with this error message, that we need additional info..

I haven't come across this particular issue before but I did find this KB on the microsoft site.  Does it describe your enviroment?
Joseph NyaemaIT ConsultantCommented:
Make sure the DNS server on the Windows NT server points to the same DNS server that the Windows 2003 server is using.
Also remove any WINS servers settings in the NT server
Have you updated your AD to 2003?  Are you in native or mixed mode?

jaccAuthor Commented:
the active directory is in 2003
Joseph NyaemaIT ConsultantCommented:
Well Jacc, you did not confirm my last comment.
I'll assume that the NT Server is pointing to the same DNS server as the 2003 server.

The error suggest that the ntserver is not able to communicate with the 2003 server.


Are you able to ping the windows 2003 server from the NT Server

From the NT SERver
ping zz.yy.xx.ww

ping Win2003Server

Where zzz.yy.xx.ww is your windows 2003 Server.
And Win2003SErver is the name you have given to the windows 2003 server.

Please confirm the comments so that we can help you pinpoint the problem.

Please also post the results of ipconfig on both servers

Thanks everybody for your help, the problem was in WINS.
After change the cable, review the ip configuration.

for any reason the server did not convert ip to name. so, I try with the lmhost file and everything work fine.

thanks again for your help.
