Failed to connect to the RPC server on computer "Exch1.domain.com"

Hi

I am running Exchange 2010.

We use some scripts occasionally to query information from our Exchange servers (message tracking logs etc). However, there are two servers for when I run this scripts remotely, they return this error:

Failed to connect to the RPC server on computer "Exch1.domain.com". Verify that a valid computer name was used

I went onto the server and checked that the RPC service was running.

So I'm a bit lost, any ideas?

Check if windows firewall is properly configured to allow "Remote Administration” on these servers.
