I have been working on this for hours.  I have a windows 2003 Server and just got 2 new windows xp professional 64 bit machines.  (Not sure if the 64 bit is related or not.).  I try to join the domain on the windows 2003 server from the System icon on the XP machine.  I try to join the domain with the username and password of the administrator on the Windows 2003 Server, and then I get the message RPC server Unavailable.  I checked if all my services are running including the TCP netbios helper and they are.  The 2003 Server has 127.0.0.1 for it's DNS (pointing to itself), the Router is configured to give out DHCP with the DNS of 192.168.1.6 which is the 2003 Server.  So but I get RPC Server Unavailable.  Anyone have any ideas?
