I'm running windows server 2008 and I have an evnt log error "10006" . It's a windows system error and the source is    "DistributedCOM".   The error says "DCOM got error 2147944122 from the computer 10.1.10.165 when attempting to activate the server". I get the same error every morning at the same time, and three right in a row but each of the three errors I get have different IP addresses. Any ideas how to resolve the error?

Have you looked at the causes of the event ID 10006 and resolution:

If that doesn't work there was a discussion with some options:

Hello,

Try the below steps and let us know if it works.

1) Keep open event viewer so you can see the clsid in the error
2) open regedit - HKCR\Clsid\clsid value\
3) Right click default and choose edit for the program's "freindly name"
4) open Dcomcnfg and navigate to Computers\My Computer\DCOM Config
5) find the program "friendly" name in the right
6) Right click - properties - security tab
7) make sure the user or computer has the correct rights

I need some clarification to the instructions.  Is this all done on the server 2008?
