How do I fix the DCOM error on all my workstations?

Hello All,

I keep getting the system event below on all my site workstations.

The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Launch permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
{24FF4FDC-1D9F-4195-8C79-0DA39248FF48}
 to the user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM SID (S-1-5-18).  This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.

I'd like to know if I missed something with the setup of my site server?
I only have on SCCM 2007 server on Windows 2003.
The SCCM service pack 2 has been installed.

Is there a way I can allow this server to launch applications remotely with the correct DCOM rights?

I have read loads of threads and know how to fix this error by going to the Component services and fixing the rights for the applications, but I can't do this for all my workstations.
This is frustrating the living daylights out of me...

Please help.
Thanks.

PS - I can't find the SCCM 2007 Zone for this question?

I am not very familiar with SCCM but why can't you just give the "Domain Computers" group DCOM rights?

Hello netF,
Thanks for the reply.
I'm not sure I follow? Do I add the "Domain Computers" group into the Builtin / Distributed COM users group?

I apologize I misread the original question.  If you are needing to set the DCOM permissions on all workstations then you can do this by GPO.

The path to the setting is  Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options that start with DCOM.

Thanks. I did point me in a direction. However - I think I need to put this question in the correct zone and also try and find out exactly why I need this to work or to get a work around.
