Unable to connect to Remote Registry

When I attempt to connect to a server registry remotely I get the following error

“Error connecting to network registry:  make sure that this computer is on the network, has remote admin enabled, and both computers are running remote registry service.”

Both servers are Win2003 SP2 both are logged in with the Domain Administrator account.  So far I have:
1.  Turned on the remote reg service on both servers
2.  verified “File and Print Sharing” was enabled.  We have 2 NIC’s teamed (NIC #1, NIC#2, NIC Team).  I can only enable on #1 or #2 I left it on #1
3.  Verified domain/administrator has full control over the following reg key – HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurePipeServers and that this propagated down to all child folders.
4.  Verified remote access is on via Properties of My Computer --> Remote Tab --> Enable RDP.

Not sure what else it could be.  I able to connect to other server registries from the source server, I have tried to connect to the same destination server from other servers and workstations and I get the same result.
Thanks

Check the local policy of the server, to make sure that nothing is wacky with the" Remotely Accessible Reg Paths (and Sub Paths)" policy, under Security Options....

I verified that both the values in the Local Policy relating to Network Remote Accessibilty...matched another server and also matched the values in HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurePipeServers.

After making the changes I listed above I bounced the server as a "last resort" and things worked after the reboot.
