Can't transfer master roles from 2003 to SBS 2003 - RPC server unavailable
Posted on 2009-04-18
I thought I was on the home stretch bringing my 2003 SBS server back into my existing domain but after transferring the master roles FSMO to the SBS 2003 server, the Continue Installation process claims that it does not have all the master roles. I don't want to seize the role because I need the other server to stay in production. Netdom query fsmo on the SBS server gives RPC server is unavailable. Netdom from the 2003 give incorrect parameter.. :| When I try to connect with NTDSUTIL to the SBS server from the 2003 Enterprise server, it errors out with an RPC error: DsBindW error 0x6ba(The RPC server is unavailable.) I've started the RPC services but that didn't help. DNS is installed on both servers and both servers are currently pointing to the SBS server. Any ideas?
