NetIQ Control Center 7.0.x
On a Microsoft SQL Server 2005 installation with a linked server configured to "SQLHOSTSERVER", execution of a remote stored procedure fails with error: "Server "SQLHOSTSERVER' is not configured for RPC"
After adding a QDB to Control Center or moving the Control Center database to a new sql server you see error "Server "SQLHOSTSERVER' is not configured for RPC" in Cache manager status.
To correct this problem, please run the following queries against the NQCCDB database:
exec sp_serveroption @server='myserver', @optname='rpc', @optvalue='true'
exec sp_serveroption @server='myserver', @optname='rpc out', @optvalue='true'
Once these two queries are run successfully against the NQCCDB, the results of teh exec sp_helpserver query should include 'rpc,rpc out'. At this point the NetIQ Cache Manager service should be re-started, and should properly process all future RPC-related transactions.
The rot cause of this problem is most likely that RPC is not configured for your linked server. This is not a default option. You can see what settings are configured with the following query against the Control Center Database (named NQCCDB by default):
If 'rpc,rpc out' is not in your results, then the the linked server isn't configured for RPC.
