Hi Experts,

Thanks for reading. When trying to RDP into a VM, I receive the following error:

"The RPC server is unavailable."

I have a server with Windows Server 2003 running with the VM on it called "finance".

Can you help me access this machine once again?

I've tried rebooting it, and I've taken a look at the services running, unless I'm missing something. I've also tried "net start rpcss" and it's already running it says. I've tried restarting the VM, too.

Thanks,

Anthony

Sorry for the slight delay, and thank you for your reply. I tried what the article said, restarted, and still have no luck.

Thanks, davorin.

It looks like my issue is most likely DNS related, as my server is getting a 192 IP address from the other domain, but a 10 address it's domain...

Do you use DHCP on your server? On server I prefer using fixed IP adresses.
When you are sure you have correct IP address on your server check also A record for that server in DNS server responsible for that domain.
