This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi Guys,

I'm trying to migrate enterprise vault 9.0 to a 64-bit windows 2008 server.  I already did the steps before running the EV configuration wizard. But when I ran the EV confgiration wizard I got the following error message:

Unable to query the status of a vault service Service:

Service: Enterprise Vault Directory Service


Error: The RPC is not available

I already point the DNS alias to the new name of the EV Server and flush the dns but it doesn't work.

Please help.

So when you ping evexchange does it resolve to the correct ip?

Hi Tony,

Thanks for your suggestion. I successfully repaired the database, I just added the alias name which is evexchange in the hosts file and it become successful.

So is evexchange the new machine or the old one?

What happens if you ping by name, by IP and by FQDN the new machine?

Are you migrating to Windows 2008 R2 ?  What steps are you following exactly, I mean have you already done the SQL steps?

If you want to migrate your complete environment from serverA to serverB you better look into the EV Server Settings Migration Wizard:
