Why am I seeing that the RPC Server is unavailable when I am in the Certificates Manager?  I am trying to install a certificate on my Exchange 2K3 Server for OWA.  When I try to install the cert I get an RPC error.  When I go into the Certificates Manager I can't do any administration.  All I see is that the RPC server is unavailable.

   Any help would be greatly appreciated and thank you -

More information - of course,  Sorry I didn't add it in before.  The Windows version is 2003.  Exchange version 2003.  Certificate Services are installed locally on the server.  Member sever in a Windows 2003 domain.  RPC services - along with all of the Automaticcaly started services - are all running.  Nothing in the Event logs that helps me with this.  Nothing on the internet that points to any type of solution that I could find.  Certificate services installed without any problems evident.  However, when I look at Certificate services in an MMC all I see is the RPC server is unavailable.

   Thank you for any help with this one.
