How do I configure COM+ Server security for all users?

Howdy! I've installed 8 VB6 DLLs as COM+ components on a Windows 2003 Advanced Server. I've created VBS scripts on a client that does a CreateObject for each and each works to that extent. However, when I try and access a method within an object, I get a 429. I think I'm missing a permission level on the server but I, nor anyone I work with, know what it is. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!   =:o)

Thanks again, Jagdish, for your help. Regrettably, I purchase Mr. Mojica's book several months ago, studied it, and used what I learned to establish my COM+ environment. The "twist" is that it all worked fine in a test environment (different server, of course) and the failures only started when I was given a new (production) server to work with. Sigh....

But, having read the book doesn't mean I memorized everything, does it?!? (LOL)

I will go back and peruse the relevant sections.

Thanks again!
