Fixing DCOM Error’s in events log


Problem: Sometimes on a server, you will get a lot of these DCOM errors. This is a permissions issue.

Solution: Note the CLSID, in this example, the CLSID is {49BD2028-1523-11D1-AD79-00C04FD8FDFF}.

  • Open Component Services, go to Computers -> My Computers -> DCOM Config
  • Ensure the right side is viewed in detail mode
  • Scroll down to locate the Application ID matching the CLSID noted above.
  • Right-click on he Application and select properties.
  • Go to the Security Tab, ad in the Lauch and Activation Permissions, select Edit
  • You will notice a few accounts with SIDS
  • Delete these rouge SID’s and add the account that should have access to the application, in this case, it is Ctx_SmaUser, and allow all options.
  • Now refresh the event log and you will notice the error is no longer recorded.
