Have you tried the following?
1. Run dcomcnfg
2. Click the "My Computer" icon (in the top right side) and ticked the "Enable distributed COM on this computer" checkbox under the default properties tab.
3. Reboot the server.
No worries, thanks for the reply. i'll try it inline with our next scheduled reboot.
I'm also having the issue. My workstation is Vista 32bit, fully patched as of last weeks out of band bonus update (Thanks MS!)
The server is 2003/SP2/patched.
I looked at the "Enable distrubuted COM on this computer" is already checked. Server was just rebooted and still no joy.
I also meet all the req's , ie Domain Admin, Mail Admin, basically God on the network.
Any other suggestions?
