The RPC server is unavailable RPC function call failed

Backup agent for Microsoft Windows servers and workstations (formerly Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE)

The RPC server is unavailable RPC function call failed

Hello,

we are using VEB ver 1.1.1.112 on a physical Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard for backing up some user data. After the server crashed, we restored system from Windows Backup restorepoint. After this we got a strange VEB error:
„The RPC server is unavailable RPC function call failed. Function name: [GetSvcVersion]. Target machine: [10.1.20.66]. „
10.1.20.66 is localhost.
We uninstalled and reinstalled VEB, exclude C:\Windows\Veeam from antivirus software, but nothing helped.

Windows Firewall setting (server is in domain): Domain Profile is Active, Windows Firewall is off.

Tnx for help.

Hi rodo,

Can you elaborate when you get the described error? Also I wonder if it’s possible to submit a support case from the Endpoint's UI or is it also crushing?

Hi,

after comparing this server with another one working I found Veeam Transport component missing. Recreate repository on this server through VBR solved this problem.

Tnx.

Thanks! So the said machine keeps both Endpoint app and VBR repository, right?

Hi:
I'm using Veeam B&R 9.5 and I encountered the same error. Regenerating transport solved the problem, so thank you for your help.
