did you apply the patch to both servers?  the target and the source?
It looks like the RPC on the server generating the error has been updated but the the target machine ( hasn't been updated

No it was not applied to the other server.  We were only doing servers that had access from the outside world at first.

Try to apply the patch to that server and see if the problem goes away... this was an RPC (remote Procedure Call) patch and it looks like the fix needs to be on both sides

We are having the same issue here on our Exchange Server 2007. Any ideas what would cause this? Which security update did you install? I dont recall installing any updates.
