The RPC server is unavailable. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are getting below error while trying to access remote services.msc console of windows 2000 server from windows 2016 server. 

    Error1722: The RPC server is unavailable. The RPC server is unavailable.

    However, we are able to connect the same windows 2000 sever from windows 2012 R2 OS. Ports are open and file/priner settings are also selected on legacy host (windows 2000) and thats  why it is working between windows 2012 and 2000.

    Can any one help to fix this issue while opening service control manager of windows 2000 host from windows 2016 host ?

  • Hi,

    This forum is discussing and asking questions about the Windows Form and ClickOnce, I'm afraid your question is not related to them, so I will move this thread to Where is the Forum for...? forum to redirect it.

    Thank you for your understanding.
