Causes for RPC communication error

Common causes for an RPC failure can be network connectivity issues, interrupted RPC service, firewall issues, etc.

Steps to resolve RPC error

  • Ping the agent computer from the DataSecurity Plus server and check whether it is in the same network as the server.
  • Make sure the user credentials given in Domain settings are also added to the Domain Admin user account.
  • Make sure DataSecurity Plus' default ports are opened.
  • Start the Remote Procedure Call (RPC), RPC Locator, and Remote Registry services, if they are not already running:
    • Go to Start > Run and type services.msc.
    • Right-click the individual service's name.
    • Click Properties.
    • Change the Startup type to Automatic.
    • Click Start.
  • Check whether Admin$ and C$ are shared.
    • Go to Start > Run and type fsmgmt.msc.
