Hi All,

I have 2 pairs of virtual servers on vmware esx. One pair is a sbs2008 with a server 2003 terminal server, the other pair is sbs2011 also with a server 2003 terminal server.

The 2 pairs of virtual servers have nothing to do with eachother, and they are on different networks.

The last couple of weeks I sometimes get an error on the terminal server stating "the RPC server is unavailable" when trying to log on. Sometimes i also get the error "the specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted".

Any help is welcome.
