I'm trying to join a x64 2008 R2 Server to an existing SBS 2003 R2 domain and i keep getting an error 'The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "mydomain": The remote procedure call failed and did not execute.

I do have routing and remote access running on the 2008 server and the RPC service is also running.

I do have ISA 2004 on the SBS Server, could this be blocking it, i have 2 other servers all connected and on the domain?

Any ideas, cheers, Darren.

1. I assume there's nothing wrong with your SBS 2003 R2 server, otherwise the other server's probably wouldn't have joined successfully or you would have noticed recent RPC error messages in their Event Logs, so the difference is only in either the version or edition of OS, or the Routing and Remote Access Services on the 2008 server, or the network adapter configuration, or firewall configuration.

2. Are either of the other member servers running 2008, x64 and/or RRAS, have 1, 2 or more network adapters, or have thier Windows firewall enabled?

3. Can you confirm that your 2008 server's "Windows Firewall" allows for RPC communication on the local network, i.e. can you view the contents of a share on your 2008 server from your SBS 2003 server (e.g. "\\2008Server\SharedFolder") and logging into it with an account local to the 2008 server?

4. Vice versa?

5. More detail would help.

Just worked it out, it was ISA 2004. I have disabled the RPC Filter and re-started the services, it has now joined ok. I will enable the filter again now it has joined ok.

Cheers, Darren.
