Hi,
Within my network we just had some major changes occur.  I had to change the master operations from one DC to another DC.  While that happened DNS became a mess and the following error kept appearing when I tried to remote into anyone of my 60 boxes.  

The System cannot log you on due to the following error: The RPC Server is unavailable.  Please try again or consult your system administrator

I looked up the appropriate kb article in microsoft, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555839.

That did me know good, as my DNS settings, time zone settings, and services indicated w/n the kb article were all correct and still this error messages keeps appearing when i remote into my servers.  

If anyone could help me out on what i need to do in order to get my boxes back to normal that would be great.  

Thanks and thanks for your time in advance.

Check your DNS and see if you have right pointer for DC. If not, delete old one and create new one with right IP address.

Hope this help.

Hopefully DHCP will work, but if not check your scope on the server and set to an ip within that scope.  Also create a host file to help resolve your DC.(http://vlaurie.com/computers2/Articles/hosts.htm)
