Event ID 10021 - DCOM

Hi There,

I'm getting a recurring error on our SBS server, DCOM, event ID 10021,The launch and activation security descriptor for the COM Server application with CLSID {56BE716B-2F76-4DFA-8702-67AE10044F0B} is invalid. It contains Access Control Entries with permissions that are invalid. The requested action was therefore not performed. This security permission can be corrected using the Component Services administrative tool.

Now although it says, "This security permission can be corrected using the Component Services administrative tool" How do I match up 56BE716B-2F76-4DFA-8702-67AE10044F0B with the component that is causing the error?

Thanks for any help,


PS Please see attached for other errors I'm getting at the same time that seem to be related.

Applications matching the GUIDs are found when looking in HKCR\CLSID registry key. The GUID posted is related to Volume Shadow Copy Service.

Anyway followed the process but the network service was already added and had the local activation permisson set. I removed it and added again and ok'ed. Will see if I get the error again tonight.

Well looks like that has solved it, I was getting the DCOM error every day now it's gone from the last 2 days logs!

Thanks for assistance henjoh09!
