Detailed error: Unable to access the computer Filer1. The error was: The RPC server is unavailable.
I'm thinking it's a firewall issue as I am able to connect successfully and the the Local Users and Group on my domain's local Filer.
Anyone else ran into this issue?

I can see Shared Folders in the MMC, but I'm getting a RPC error and am unable to open Local Users and Groups. Verified my account is in a group that's included in the Administrators group on the Filer. Completed a net use and no connections to said Filer are present...
But I did find out what the issue is... for some reason the MMC will toss an RPC error when you connect via a FQDN or IP address. If you use the short name it works like a charm... so I went ahead and created host entries for all of my Filers and it's working now.
Name resolution has been a sore spot for some time now, but sadly my group doesn't have the permissions to make changes (it's part of another functional group within the enterprise).
