I went into the registry and found
Changed Owner to administrators on the Windws 2012 server

Then opened Component Services on the Windows 2012 Server
Expand Computers
Expand My Computer
Highlighted DCOM on toolbar clicked details
Found 8BC3F05E-D86B-11D0-A075-00C04FB68820
changed permissions to add mydom/spfarm  with "Local Activation permissions

Still getting this error
