SBS 2011 repeating Event ID 10009

I just installed a new SBS 2011 Standard server – migrating to this from an operational SBS 2003 Server.

Both servers have firewall disabled. Both servers and all PC’s are on the same local subnet.

From when this new server was brought online, periodically through the day I get repeating System Event ID 10009 with the verbiage, “DCOM was unable to communicate with the computer [FQDN of many PC’s] using any of the configured protocols.”

Again, firewalls are disabled and the listed PC’s are in the Domain and powered-up.

Any help will be appreciated.

Then at this point I wouldn't worry about the errors until post migration completion - if they still happen.

You have a lot more to do to complete it and this isn't something I would be spending time looking at to be honest as it will probably resolve itself in time anyway.

What sort of cert are you looking at and how many names are you getting?  Max should be 5 names no matter how many domain names you want to host.

The problem isn't with the server it is with the client.

Please have a read of the 10009 section in the following article:

It is about SBS 2008 but applies to SBS 2011 too.

Alan,

That KB refers to problems with firewall configuration. Servers AND workstations have firewall disabled.

I've seen lots of blogs scattered across the Internet referring to firewall problems, but that isn't the issue here since firewalls are DISabled.

Thanks.

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

Sorry - you didn't mention that the workstation firewalls were also disabled.

Is the migration completed with the old SBS 2003 server DCPROMO'd and removed from the domain?

Windows firewall should be running on sbs 2011. This can occur if there is some monitoring software/console in SBS is trying to poll the PCs when they are off.

Alan,

I'm just starting the migration - the new server was brought online Thursday afternoon.

The new server moved DHCP to itself when it first booted, but I have yet to move any data or shares to the new server. Exchange data will not be migrated until I iron-out the kinks on getting a UCC SSL. Due to the size of the IS, I may not migrate Exchange until next weekend.

I have yet to demote the old server - it remains online.

Thanks.

Alan,

Thanks lots for the advice.

I've already created the request file - I just need to double-check who gets email from NetSol when email is sent to the domain contact. Once I verify that the contact is me then I'll move forward on that.

Thanks again for the quick replies.

You are welcome.  Good luck with the rest of the migration.  Shout if you get stuck anywhere.
