I am trying to promote a win2k3 member server to be a DC in a windows 2000 domain.
When I run DCPROMO I get the following error on the win2k3 server:
"The RPC Server is unavailable"
If I perform a ping -a to my servers it returns the full name so it seems as if DNS is working correctly although from what I have already read on the net it does point to a DNS issue.
I also had a problem when trying to add a workstation to the domain earlier on when the same error was reported by I disabled the firewall and it then connected ok. (There is no firewall installed on my 2003 server)
When I run a 'replicate now' from AD sites and services it fails with RPC server unavailable
What can I do to resolve this?
