Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition and DCOM error
Posted on 2003-11-04
I recently upgraded a server to Windows 2003, and installed Commerce Server 2002 on it. I applied all of the service packs and what not, but I still receive the following error:
Access denied attempting to launch a DCOM Server. The server is:
The user is Administrator/SHOP, SID=S-1-5-21-117609710-1972579041-682003330-500.
From what I gather, this DCOM component is the error tracking service. I wouldn't mind it (lots of error messages though), except now an error has occured somewhere in CS 2002, and I cannot fix it without this service. Any ideas how to get this component up and running?
And yes, I know that Windows 2003 is shipped in a locked down state.
