I have a serious problem here.
There are a couple W2003SP1 servers in the network that I can't login to. The symptoms in all of them are the same: It just feezes after entering uname and pw. I know, though, that the server is running its applications since I have client PC that connect to it for a certain application.
And if I try to connect to it remotely (with either name or ip addres) using Computer Manager, I get this message:
Computer \\172.a.b.c can't be managed. The RPC server is too busy to complete this operation.

Nothing that I'm a aware of has changed in these servers. What did change is that a new DC was installed in the network by th IT people replacing the previous one. This annoying behaviour started 2-3 days after that.
