While trying to restore using the agent method you may receive this error:
"Failed to install the restore agent. Error description: Failed to create a remote object .The RPC server is unavailable."
This is due to the firewall on the remote domain controller blocking the restore agent from communicating to the Recovery Manager for Active Directory host.
Create two inbound Windows Firewall rules based on the Program selection in the New Rule Wizard which explicitly allows the two .exe files to communicate. They may not exist in this location as they are copied during the restore process so the rule will need to be created manually by either copying the file to the location or selecting another file and then editing the location:
Recovery Agent (ERIAgent.exe)
Recovery Agent (OnlineRestoreAdapter.exe)
Create two inbound Windows Firewall rules which specifies the ports in which the restore agent needs to communicate through. Rule #1 would need local ports 135, 139, 389, and 445 opened. Rule #2 would need "Dynamic RPC" local ports opened. This can be chosen in the local port drop down menu during the custom "New Rule" wizard. Ports in both rules will need to be set to TCP.
Turn off the Windows Firewall on the Domain Controller
