There's a machine that is out in the field these days / hasn't been on our SBS 2011 network for months now (a year + maybe).

I'm getting loads of DCOM was unable to communicate with the computer x.x.x.x using any of the configured protocols errors in the event log.

some web pages for this say to delete the computer from AD. But it might be back at some point.  Is there a way to have dcom not try to communicate / stop logging these?

Or after x months, DCOM wants to talk to machines that aren't on the LAN?
