Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 won't allow RPC service to execute.

Observations:

-I cannot connect a windows 2003 server with service pack 1 to the Active Directory domain.

-If the server is already on the domain, I cannot add domain users to the remote desktop users list

-I cannot add domain users or groups to shares on the server

The problem is that Windows Server 2003 SP1 changes RPC communications so that it works in a way that Checkpoint identifies as illegal. I applied a change to the RPC endpoint identification process in Checkpoint and that fixed the issue.

 

1) On the SmartCenter Server, stop the firewall services by typing at prompt: cpstop
2) Back up the $FWDIR/lib/dcerpc.def file.
3) Edit the dcerpc.def file. (Use edit.com from CMD prompt as Notepad/Wordpad will corrupt the file)
 
Original
#define NO_ENFORCE_CNTX_NUM 0
 
 
Modified
#define NO_ENFORCE_CNTX_NUM 1
 
 
4) Save changes and close the dcerpc.def file.
5) Start the firewall services by typing at prompt: cpstart
6) Log into SmartDashboard, and install the Security Policy.
