"RPC Server is unavailable" or "the requested ressource is in use"
Posted on 2004-10-08
We are running five Windows 2000 Servers at our server location. Three of them running IIS 5.0, two of them SQL-Server. There is no domain or AD.
Sometimes, our Web-Servers gave out "RPC Server is unavailable" or "The requested ressource is in use". With the RPC-Error, a simple click on "reload" is all you need, but if "ressource is in use" comes up, the only solution is rebooting the server.
On our IIS, we are running several ASP-Scripts witch connect through ODBC to SQL. We are using IPs in the ODBC-Connection. The DBs are behind a secound firewall, running Linux with Netfilter. I'm sure, that all necessary ports are not filtered by Netfilter, so anything should work as there were no firewalls.
Does anybody has an idea? Our last Idea is, to set up a special Server for an minimal-AD, running 2000 Server too.
