Domain Migration Administrator 7.x
Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2
Failed to Install Agent - RPC Server Unavailable.
Cannot install Agent on Windows XP SP2 ( Service Pack 2 ) machine.
Installing Windows XP SP2 turns on the Internet Connection Firewall Protection and updates the behavior of RPC communications. If Internet Connection Firewall Protection and Disable all exceptions are both enabled, DMA cannot dispatch the Agent.
Warning: This has not been through QE testing - other issues may arise after the agent is successfully installed.
To enable DMA to dispatch an Agent, do one of the following:
- Turn off the Firewall Protection - this is the recommended method.
- Allow an exception to enable Port TCP 139, which you can do by either of the following methods:
- Create explicit designation.
- Turn on the File and Print Sharing exception.
