  • Eventid 10009 DCOM errors!!!

    Hello all,

    I have been trying to solve this issue for awhile now and have came up with no resolutions.

    I am getting hundreds of eventid 10009 a day stating
    DCOM was unable to communicate with the computer (insert computer name)
    using any of the configured protocols.

    This is only happening with Windows 7 Clients !!! all other machines are fine.

    The errors show up 8 at a time in the event log per machine all within seconds of each other.

    From what I have read, the issue is usually a firewall configuration problem. So I have tried every firewall configuration with no luck. Even turn off firewalls on both client and server, still getting the error.

    I think this may be linked to this issue, when at the Windows SBS Console under networking/computers tab, Security Status for Windows 7 machines comes up with Not Available.

    I am thinking that when the server tries to poll the security status of a windows 7 machine it is getting a DCOM error. But I don't know where to begin to fix this, if this is the issue.

    Any help appreciated,

    Thanks,

        Have you completely disabled the firewall on the windows 7 machines?
        Can the win7 computer see the server, via IP, and via name?
        Can the server see them.
        Are the windows 7 Machines 32 or 64 bit, also, what version?

        Can you give us anything other then the event error? Are the win7 able to log on, do they get a IP?

            Both firewalls disabled on server and win7 clients.

            Yes win7 clients see the server ip and name.

            Yes the server can see them.

            Windows 7 machines are 64bit and 32bit...

            Thanks,

                  No printers shared. I did find the PC's in the error were windows Xp and did not have the Group Policy for the Firewall enabled. I am checking today to see if the problem is still happening
