Hi Experts,

I'm having a problem with DCOM staying enabled on a 2003 Server SP1 machine.  I can enable it in component services, but when I close out and reopen, it is disabled.  I'm logged in on the domain admin account via console.

    Anything in the event logs?  There were some issues after the install of Microsoft Security Bulleting MS05-051 which effected DCOM, the following may help -

    We found the issue.  After applying SP1, a service was crashing dcom somehow.  Reinstalling the product that creates the service fixed the problem.
