A. For security, Windows 2000 sets the remote procedure call (RPC) replication port dynamically. However, you might want to manually set the port (e.g., to monitor data).
- Start regedit.
- Go to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NTDS\Parameters registry entry.
- From the Edit menu, select New, DWORD Value.
and press Enter.
- Double-click the new entry, and enter the port you want to use. (Make sure the port isn’t already in use.) Click OK.
- Close the registry editor.
- Reboot the machine.
After monitoring finishes, you need to remove the registry entry you created. Removing this entry reinstates the security that dynamic RPC port allocation provides.
