Out of curiosity, if WMI works from ipMonitor, why not use it instead of RPC?
If you wish to use RPC, try the following test from the ipMonitor system and see if it works:
- Open a CMD prompt.
- Type "Runas /user:[local_account] cmd.exe" and hit Enter.
***where [local_account] is the local account on the ipMonitor host assigned to the Credential being used by the failing Monitor(s)***
- Within the new CMD window running as the account, type "dir \\[server_addr]\c$\" and hit Enter.
Does this command provide you with the contents of the C drive on the remote system?
It's with the recovery (restart service) the problem occurs as it uses RPC (?)...
For the acctual test we use SNMP. I have tried WMI on the test and it works but RPC just gives me error...
I can see the login in Security-log and it looks fine so my guess it's something strange in the network but I can't see what it could be...
I have this setup working on a few machines but they are behind a newer firewall and the ones that done work are behind an older fw so the rules are a bit messy thats why I asked if ipmonitor does something other then "normal" RPC...
Yes, I can list the contents of the C drive so it's even more confusing :S
