EventID:10002 DCOM error happening all the time...

I have a DC in a Windows 2000 environemnt that I am am constantly getting an EventID:10002 with the following description:
Access denied attempting to launch a DCOM Server. The server is:
{D99E6E73-FC88-11D0-B498-00A0C90312F3}
The user is SYSTEM/NT AUTHORITY, SID=S-1-5-18.

I'm not exactly sure what's going on, but I'd like to resolve it..Any ideas?  Thanks.

doesn't look life threatening, are you having any network problems related?

These DCOM error messages are benign, and you can ignore them. As noted in the "Cause" section of this article, do not change your DCOM settings to prevent these error messages from being logged.

Thanks.  I was hoping that they're benign, but I'm having major issues with a Blackberry/Goodlink server on the same machine and thought they *might* be related, but maybe not....

This DCOM message would seem to be related to certificate server.  Do you have Certificate Server installed on the same machine, or do you attempt to access the Certificate Server MMC on that system?

I see one indication that upgrading the version of MDAC may resolve the issue.
(Always backup your system before upgradring MDAC -- one can rarely REMOVE MDAC updates!)
The download page is here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/data/downloads/updates/default.aspx#MDACDownloads 
(I've had good luck with 2.7SP1 updated, with the service packs -- I've not been brave enough to play with 2.8 yet.  Check with your software vendor (Goodlink server vendor) to find out what version they recommend.)
