Default Connecting to domain server..

Ok so im trying to add my laptop to a domain server...

When I add it, type in the admin username and password, I get the error that "The RPC Server is unavailable"

The RPC service is started on the laptop and the server... anyone got any ideas?

Have you tried this?

I had this issue one time, and I typed this into the command prompt, and seemed to be resolved: net start rpcss

But did you try the solution?

I had this same issue not too long ago- and this resolved it, even though the service was running.
