  • RPC server is unavailable

    I have Hyena 4.2C installed on a Windows 2000 box. My domain is Windows 2000. The objects shows it to be a Windows 2000 domain and I point it to LDAP:// and give it the server IP address for ADSI.

    I can expand all OUs, groups, users, etc. without problem EXCEPT "DOMAIN CONTROLLERS" trying to expand that give me an error message of "RPC Server is Unavailable". What's going on here?

    Does it work if you don't specify a ADSI Server? Does it work if you enter the computer name for that server instead of the IP?

      If I don't specify any ADSI server name I get the following error everytime I try and expand OU's, groups, servers, users, etc. (everything underneath the domain name) --> Unable to access Active Directory path LDAP:// The server is not operationable.

      If i specify the netbios name of the server instead of the IP address for the ADSI server, I can open almost all of the categories under the domain except the DOmain Controllers group (note - NOT domain controllers under the OU field, the other one). RPC server is unavailable.

      Also, expanding my OUs and other fields sometimes takes awhile... 8 or 9 seconds to expand my OU's. That seems real high. Not sure if it's related.

        This turned out to be a DNS problem that wasn't properly resolving the FQDN for this domain.
