I'm getting this "The RPC server is unavailable" error when I'm trying to add any computer. They are all windows 2016/2012R2 VMware Virtual CloudDirector VMs in the same subnet. Machines can communicate with each other, pings fines, I've set authentication properly, checked if RPC related services are up and running, disabled firewalls but it didn't help.

How can I further investigate this error and what should I check to connect/communicate with other computers from Management Console?

Have you already run through the "RPC server is unavailable" article by chance? https://www.eventsentry.com/kb/302  often you'll find that even outside of EventSentry you can't connect to the ADMIN$ share that is needed for deploying or managing the agent, so once you've got that share working in general you'll find that it works in EventSentry as well.
