  • Hi,

     

    It seems that the RPC service behavior is unstable. Could you please go through the link and check it.

    or Also check that the culprit dc is on Domain controller ou or not?

  • TrkSvr is distributed link tracking server service which is disabled by default in all version of windows 2003, but its enabled on windows 2000. MS says to disable this service.

    Because of replication overhead and the space that FileLinks tables uses in Active Directory, Microsoft recommends that you turn off the Distributed Link Tracking Server service on Active Directory domain controllers
