Whats causing this...DCOM was unable to communicate with the computer <machine IP> using any of the configured protocols

Hi All,

One of our servers keeps reporting the following;

DCOM was unable to communicate with the computer 192.168.100.210 using any of the configured protocols.

It occurs many times throughout the day and the computer address could be anything, sometimes its another server, client PC, printer... We have no idea whats causing it.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The problem is, it could be really everything. Try to enable extended DCOM logging:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/910695/en-us, scroll down to "Registry information" -> EnableEELogging. Since you have SP2 the hotfix should not be neccessary.

IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.
