    Cannot connect via MSTSC to server

    Hello

    I have a problem connecting to a server running 2008 R2 via MSTSC or Remote Desktop Connection Manager. Using RDCM, it returned an error code, 7431. Couldn't find much info on Google so I tried MSTSC, which gave a more detailed error which basically said that there was a time or date difference between the my pc and the server. I've checked the time on my PC, been down to the server room and logged on to the physical server using a KVM and the time and dates are the same as well.

    In the event log it states that the RPC Server has failed. This is a Document\File server and all of the network shares are still active, all users can still access user areas, departmental areas and shared areas.

    We do have nagios as well which gave us the additional info 'Result from smbclient not suitable.'

    I did do a search of the forum before posting this, I used to use Edugeek under a different username (freaky_seb, changed job and this account was linked to my old work email.)

    Any help would be rewarded with cookies and doughnuts!

    Cheers

    Have you tried to force the server time and client time to match?
    At the client type:

    net time \\servername /set /y

    Then try to connect to the server again.

    [Replace "servername" with the name of the server you are trying to connect to]

    Thanks for that suggestion, the company is a bit jittery at doing anything to or on the server at the moment though. I personally think that the server needs restarting and that would solve the issue, but as its the file server and currently in use, we can't do that until the end of the day.

    Just thought I'd update so this can be closed, we restarted the server and all is well again with the file server.
