I have setup a small lab using VMWare workstation to learn Windows Server 2008. At this point, my lab consists of one domain controller (DC-1) running Server Core and one member server (Server1) running Server 2008 Enterprise.
I'm in Reliablity and Performance Monitor on Server1. I'm trying to configure Server1 to remotely monitor DC-1 using the Reliablity Monitor. When I try to connect to DC-1, I get a message stating "The RPC server is unavailable".
I can ping DC-1 from Server1 by name and address.
I have run the following command on DC-1, which should enable me to use MMC to administer that server:
netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group = "Remote Administration" new enable = yes
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
