DCOM Component failure "Class not registered"
Posted on 2008-10-16
How do I ensure a COM component is registered for use? Are there any checks we can make to ensure it? This error is coming from a vendor product which uses DCOM to communicate to a backend system. We have other servers which are working fine, but we have two servers which are not. Checking the configurations on dcomcnfg.exe has resulted in the same settings for both the working and non-working systems. If I use a working system and connect to the backend of the non-working system - it also works so it points directly to the non-working servers. Any help would be great!
PS: The two servers in question have been recently rebuilt using standard scripts.
I would like to request since I haven't received any responses to this query if anyone knows of any tools for DCOM based sniffing or a known network tool and how to identify the communications for DCOM within it. Wish I could raise the points but it is at the max.
Thanks, In Advance,
