    DCOM Objects missing!

    Bit worrying this one and haven't been able to find anything about how to fix this from a google but all DCOM objects on my DC's are missing. Seems that this is the case since my 2003 server upgrade back in August. I don't think they're gone as nothing would work but do not appear in the window when the DCOM configuration node is selected. Could be cosmetic i suppose but was wondering whether anyone has any idea as to why this may have happened and how to fix it!!?

    Is the DCOM Server Process Launcher service running?

    So if you click Start > Run > DCOMCNFG.EXE and press enter, what happens?

    This brings up the Component Services window but as mentioned in my initial post the Component Services>Computers>My Computer> DCOM Config window contains no objects

    Just realized i hadn't updated this thread but this was down to permissions in the the registry!! Not sure where unfortunately as was a while ago now and for some reason I didn't document it but is a point in the right direction for anyone who ends up here with the same problem

    Hey Randle, where did you exactly find the flaw in the Registry Settings?? Me and you are the only people on the internet who have had this problem, i could really use your help! Basically I took away permissions for the Microsoft Word Application object in the Component Services under administrative tools.. As soon as i took these permissions away, a chain reaction occurred and 90% of my DCOM objects disappeared! I'm freaking out at the moment as I've never been more lost as to what to do. Please help me out! Contact me directly through /axa@newmarketgroup.com/, or share on the forum for everyone to see. Thanks in advance!
    Sincerely
    Arjun

    Hi ArjunA. The only notes I can find on this are:

    Removed the CLSIDs that were prefixed by xxx_ in the CLSID section of the registry on each server. After removing this DCOM components have reappeared.
    I can't say this rings a bell so have no other advice than above I'm afraid. Worth a check even if it may be a laborious task!!

    Awesome, thanks that's definitely a step forward in the right direction ... Am I looking for "xxx_" or is x just a variable here? For example should I remove CLSIDs that have 123_ as a prefix?

    Hmmm not all that sure. I'd imagine this is a variable. Make a backup of the registry first then try removing anything with a prefix as suggested I reckon. Can't mess DCOM up any more than it already is by the sounds of it
