RPC SERVER is unavailable means a request was made to a remote service (of some sort), and the remote service did not respond. Often it's because the request was blocked by a firewall (possibly Windows firewall on the remote server), or the remote service that the request was sent to isn't running (or isn't listening for incoming requests).

It's hard to help much more without know what component is giving that error, and what remote service the component is trying to communicate with.
