DCOM Error 10009, DistributedCOM

Hello experts one of our servers has a TON of DCOM 10009 errors.  The error is hapening because DCOM is attempting to communicate with a non existant server.
Error message:
DCOM was unable to communicate with the computer xxx-xxx using any of the configured protocols.

It can happen if the non-existent server still exists in AD.  If so remove it from there.

Okay so you're correct these machines are still listed as active in AD, I've disabled them.  Let it sit for a day or so.  I'll post the results / awarded points then.  Thanks for your quick response.

Generally you would delete them, but disabling may work. Let us know.

We generally don't delete to prevent reuse of identifiers to preserve audit history.

SO found the cause to our issue.  ManageEngine Log360 was loaded about a week ago, during it's initial scan of our network it added all devices, including the ones that were getting DCOM errors.  Deleted these devices out  of "Member Server(s)" seems to have fixed issue.
