I have a server running Server 2003 that all of the sudden started throwing out this error this morning around 11:00AM EST - Source: DCOM  Event ID:  10009  "DCOM unable to communicate with the computer xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx using any of the configured ."  The main issue is that once this Server is plugged into the network...it max'es out my internet connection...and no one can get out.  When I am pinging gateway IP, everything is good...with a second or two after plugging the server in, I loose ping and no one can get through...unplug the server and everything is good again.  I have followed quite a few of the suggestions on this fourm and others...I have checked the DCOM services order, reg info, etc.  When looking through Event Logs...the IP just keeps going up and up...and randomly switching to a new public subnet...so you can see where the traffic is coming from...but I don't know how to stop it.  Please let me know if anyone has seen this before...I am going to keep searching...thanks.
