    Hi,

     

    Thank you for the reply.

     

    I believe we do not need to reinstall the RPC service to troubleshoot this issue.

     

    The most common causes include:

     

    1.    You are unable to resolve a DNS or NetBIOS names.

    2.    The RPC service or related services may not be started.

    3.    Connectivity.

    4.    Authentication.

    5.    File and printer sharing is not enabled.

     

    You may need to check Event Log for detailed information.

     

    As I am not specialized in the DNS area, I suggest monitoring your thread in the Network Infrastructure Servers forum. I hope a DNS specialist can provide suggestions in that thread.

    Hi,

     

    The RPC service is a very important service. Quite a lot of other services depend on it.

     

    I would like to know why you want to reinstall the RPC service.

     

    What issue are you encountered on your Windows Server 2008?
