  • problem after W2K to W2K3 migration


    i have migrated a server from W2K to W2K3
    but now each time i boot this server i have a problem

    this server is used as an NAT server

    the server start but after 5 or 6 minutes i receive a pop-up as the RPC service caused an problem and the server launch the shutdown.

    when i stop the shutdown and restart the RPC service, i receive the same problem.

    have you any idee of this problem.

    I try to install server from scratch but it's the same problem.

    sounds like the blaster worm to me. I would head on over to and get the fixblast utility, and get the patch from microsoft.

          You can also go into SERVICES and change RPC to Restart the service.
          The same with RPC Locator. Reboot system.

            how about this...

            RUN > CMD > SHUTDOWN -A

            blah blah blah

              I tried that, but the "blah blah blah" switch doesn't seem to work.
              1 1 was a racehorse.
              2 2 was 1 2.

                Please configure RPC service to restart it self if it fail (no reboot, just restart the service).
                You do this by:

                Start -> Run -> services.msc -> choose RPC service -> recovery.

                After this, download all Windows updates fixs, reboot. Install and configure firewall, and that all.
