Cluster Admin Comman Line  - The RPC server is unavailable

Using the cluster admin command line tool I have created a simple batch script to check the status of our active/passive cluster servers and check a key service from each cluster group.  The syntax of the script is as follows:

"echo EUROPA CLUSTER (ACTIVE EB07GLER) >> c:\scripts\checkcluster.log
echo. >> c:\scripts\checkcluster.log
Cluster /cluster:eb09glerc group >> c:\scripts\checkcluster.log
echo. >> c:\scripts\checkcluster.log
Cluster /cluster:eb09glerc resource "Objective Server" >> c:\scripts\checkcluster.log
Cluster /cluster:eb09glerc resource "TSM group server" >> c:\scripts\checkcluster.log
Cluster /cluster:ebo9glerc resource "Oracle Services for MSCS" >> c:\scripts\checkcluster.log"

In total the script is checking 6 clusters and successfully completes on all servers except for one server where randomly one of the cluster groups (normally the second in script), reports "System error 1722 has occurred"  On further investigation if the script is ran line by line it is reporting "The RPC server is unavailable."  Output is as follows:

"EUROPA CLUSTER (ACTIVE EB07GLER)
 
Listing status for all available resource groups:



Group                Node            Status

-------------------- --------------- ------

Cluster Group        EB07GLER        Online

Application Group    EB07GLER        Online

TSM Group            EB07GLER        Online

 
Listing status for resource 'Objective Server':



Resource             Group                Node            Status

-------------------- -------------------- --------------- ------

Objective Server     Application Group    EB07GLER        Online

Listing status for resource 'TSM group server':



Resource             Group                Node            Status

-------------------- -------------------- --------------- ------

TSM group server     TSM Group            EB07GLER        Online

System error 1722 has occurred"

After looking at previous articles in the forum I have checked all settings and compared against other servers in the group and cannot see any problems.  I would appreciate if anyone can assit me accordingly.

Regards

Graeme

Try putting sleep 5 between the commands, so the cluster check wont run directly one after another, but will wait few seconds between each.

Tried this with no success.  It is strange that it is only happening on one of our cluster groups.  The problem still occurs when running the command whilst logged on at the cluster.  It transpires that the error is happening with the same cluster resource.  In this occasion it is the "Oracle Services for MSCS" resource.  I have compared this resource with the other cluster servers in our site and the settings are identical.

I think I have solved this problem by amending the case of the server name.  Although all server names are in upper case on the system that srcipt was in lower case.  When I amended the script for this one entry that kept failing to uppercase and it has worked.
