Is there any way to do this?  Some WS dont appear to have the RPC service running and I'd like to enable it domain wide.

Yes this is fairly simple to do. Follow the instructions below and make sure you apply the GPO to an OU that contains the computer accounts since it is a computer config.

Please tell us exactly what service you mean. Remote procedure call or the locator?
RPCSS is the short name of Remote Procedure Call (RPC), while RpcLocator is the other one.

Why bother? Because without RPCSS being active, the group policy client service will not run and thus, the solution mentioned by Joe will fail. Reason: the group policy client service depends on RPCSS, will not start without. Without the GP service, no GPOs will apply.

Remote procedure call

This one, not the locator service.  it's in order to install and AV solution via the admin console. The AV support say it's a RPC error.

Now we are getting somewhere. You said "Some WS dont appear to have the RPC service running" and now "The AV support say it's a RPC error".
You need to verify that the service is running... and believe me, it is, because if it wouldn't run, half of windows' other services would not be started.

So find out (services.msc) and report back.

I'm an idiot, that's the problem. It was the AV support being lazy and me listening to them.  It was a UN &  PW issue on the installer account.
