SBS 2008 recorded 10009 DCOM errors only for computers that are turned off.
 After reading several articles and the help of MS for the event 10009, I can't find a solution. Every day there are over 2000 errors.
 I appreciate any help and suggestions.

10009 DCOM errors occur when the server is unable to communicate with the workstation, such as a misconfigured firewall.

The server is unable to tell the difference between a computer turned off and the required port being blocked by a firewall.  It appears the server is functioning as designed.

Thanks, it seems logical. Do not know if I can configure SBS to record this event as informative rather than error?
