remote desktop

So the problem is DNS registration, not RPC server is unavailable, correct?
You were obviously getting that message because it couldn't resolve the
name.

So why is it not registering into DNS? I'm not sure. You didn't supply any
configuration info or elaborate on your setup, so I'll be guessing at this
point.

Keep in mind, all machines in an AD infrastructure, must ONLY use the
internal DNS in their IP properties. You can't use your ISP's or the router
as a DNS address.

Major causes can be:

Using an ISP's DNS address in the machine's IP properties.
Using your router as a DNS address in the machine's IP properties.
The Primary DNS Suffix doesn't match the zone name in DNS.
The zone in DNS is not allowing updates.
The zone in DNS is allowing only secure updates and this machine is not
joined to the domain.
The machine has multiple NICs, so both interfaces are registering, but it is
resolving to the wrong IP address.
Register this connection checkbox is unchecked in IP properties, advanced
button, DNS tab.
A registry entry was applied to disable DNS registration on the machine.

Let me know which one applies.
