    HI

    I’m looking to remotely start and stop the RPC service on client machines

    Many of them have the RPC Unavailable or similar errors

    I have tried sc.exe, psexec and powershell start-service, wmic

    All commands fail on affected machines but work as expected on the rest

    When I try to access the services.msc > other computer I also get the RPC error, same with compmgmt.msc

    Not being able to start the service is causing disrupting much of our automation.

    Windows firewall is not enable on the client machines

    all research so far on the net have not yielded any success

    How does once force this RPC service to run remotely from a command line or what is it I am missing ?

    Thanks

    Hey,

    do you mean RPCSS ? Most everything depends on RPC, so if remote is your only option, I’m not sure if you can do much about it… I’ve even had problems with taskkill /s \bla /f /pid 4 to kill SYSTEM process and force shutdowns

    You should be able to start the RPC service remotely via Computer Management > Connect to another computer … > Services
    But if you get the ‘RPC Server Unavailable’ Error this can caused by,​​​​​​
