RPC server unavailable is normally due to CIFS not enabled.

Can you try with the HTTP/HTTPS protocol?

On the cmd line

Sdcli transport_protocol set

On the MMC, right click on the SDW instance and choose transport protocol settings and choose HTTP as the default and try.

Let me know if this works.
