"The RPC server is unavailable" or "The RPC server is too busy to complete this operation"
Posted on 2006-10-25
Here is the situation,
I am working in a an NT4 environment, yes I know NT4, waiting for budget to upgarde to 2003 soon.
I am a consultant for this client, a University, started having this problem in August after a virus infection, from time to time the domain controllers, will lose all network connectivity, and if you try to open up eventvwr, or
services, you get either "The RPC server is unavailable" or "The RPC server is too busy to complete this operation"
The other symptoms are you cannot ping the server, you cannot browse the net. I tried eveything that I found on either MS knowledge base or google.
We have 4 NT4 domains, there is trust between domains, a PDC and BDC for each domain, it's happenig on all of them. sometimes 1 sometimes 3 somatimes all 8. Nothing gets logged in the eventvwr from the time the server hangs until
it's rebooted. When it happens the only thing that we can do is reboot, by pressing the power button. Any suggestions please because it's happenig almost every day now.
