RPC Server is unavailable when try to RDP to server

I once got the below message when trying to remote to a server after removing Active Directory from a server using dcpromo.

The reason I got the error message was because the server was configured to look at itself as a DNS server and because the DNS was also removed with the DCpromo command it could not find an Active Directory server for authentication.

The workaround I found was to add the following Dword to the registry:

In the folder:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server

Add the following key:

IgnoreRegUserConfigErrors =Dword:1

This will allow you to remotely log into the server. Just take note that it might take a while for the first logon to go through.
