RPC: Remote system error

[ Edited ]

I just installed two the 8.1.1 C-Mode simulators on my PC (Windows 7 running VMware Player) and while they seem to "see" each other just fine (e.g. cluster ping-cluster produces the expected results), when I do some other commands (e.g. autosupport modify -support disable *) I am greeted with:


ckeith::> autosupport modify -support disable -node *


Warning: Unable to list entries on node ckeith-02. RPC: Remote system error -

         Connection refused


Error: There are no entries matching your query.


Not all commands fail, but I don't want to get too far into trying to play with this if something is wrong.  So, the real question is, is this expected?
