Windows Remote Management Fails When Connecting to Computer with RPC Server Error
Posted on 2012-12-22
I am attempting to connect to several workstation through the active directory users and computers snap in. I right click on the computer and select manage, after a period of time I receive and error saying that the "RPC Server is not available", all computers are windows 7, some computers have Norton 360 Firewall and others have the microsoft security essentials, if I disable the fire wall, I can connect and remotely manage, except when I attempt to access the Disk Management Snap in, when I receive a message that Disk management could not start the VDS service, and that the remote computer does not support VDS or is blocked by a firewall.
Do I need to setup an incoming rule in the firewall for the remote managment, if so, what do I need to do for Norton 360 V6 and Microsoft Security Suite. What needs to be done to address the Disk Management issue.
