Has anyone experienced issues with windows 2000 workstation, and RPC access at boot-time. When booting a machine with csa i get events in windows saying that the RPC server is not available, putting the csa in testmode removes this problem. The problem for me, is that i don't see any denies in the log for any network activity related to rpc or windows logon in general. I have never seen this in windows xp, so maybe it's a problem with the way win2k does machine login/policy ? disabling the csanet shim does not change anything. Once windows is done loading, i can reach the AD fine, and get my gpo's applied, it seems to be only during boot. I have also disabled the shield rule that has deny/unrestriced network access during boot, but this also changes nothing.
