rpc server is unavailable - trust
Posted on 2006-07-18
i get this error when trying to remote to a member server "rpc server is unavailable", after entering my credentials. i found a couple questions on here that say it might be related to a trust with the DC's. apparently it is because when i run a netdiag, i cant get a list of DC's.
DC list test . . . . . . . . . . . : Failed
'MyDomain': No DCs are up.
Trust relationship test. . . . . . : Failed
'MyDomain': No DCs are up (Cannot run test).
Secure channel for domain 'MyDomain' is to '\\DC2.MyDomain.com'.
ive tried using the netdiag /fix switch, but that doesnt change anything. no other servers are having this problem and the DNS appears to be in perfect shape. i thought it would work to unjoin and rejoin the server from the domain, but my boss doesnt want to do that unless it is our only option. what else can we try?
