Source: Microsoft-SharePoint Products-SharePoint Foundation
EventID: 6398
Message: The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.SharePoint.Search.Administration.SPSearchJobDefinition (ID 67371ad5-7be6-42ba-8b9b-30ae9c54d935) threw an exception. More information is included below. Timeout expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding

Resolution: The errors are benign and may be safely ignored.

Problem: The following error may be reported in the system event log:

Source: Microsoft-Windows-DistributedCOM
EventID: 10016
Message: The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID {61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1} and APPID {61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1} to the user CONTOSO\spfarm SID (S-1-5-21-1860903272-1458820992-1399837422-1157) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.


Cause: This issue occurs because the account that is configured as the Windows SharePoint Services service account does not have the Local Activation permission to the IIS Wamreg Admin Service. The event ID error message 10016 does not affect the functionality of Windows SharePoint Services.

Resolution: You can safely ignore the event ID error message 10016 that is logged in the System log. If you want to prevent the event ID error message from being logged in the System log, use the Component Services snap-in to enable the Local Activation permission to the IIS Wamreg Admin Service for the spfarm account. On Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard, the administrator account doesn't have permissions by default to modify the IIS Wamreg Admin Service. 

You must first use the following steps to modify the permissions:

Problem: The following error may be recorded in the MSExchange Management event log every 30 minutes

Log Name:      MSExchange Management
Source:        MSExchange CmdletLogs
Date:          12/22/2010 8:00:13 AM
Event ID:      6
Task Category: General

Keywords:      Classic
User:          N/A
Computer:      CONTOSOSERVER.contoso.local
Description:
Cmdlet failed. Cmdlet Get-User, parameters {Identity=NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM}.

Cause: The error is generated by the Small Business Server datacollectorservice. When the datacollectorservice runs Exchange related tasks a check is performed to determine whether or not the current user is an Exchange admin and mail-enabled. The datacollectorservice runs under the context of the local system check so the check fails and the error is generated.

Resolution: The error is benign and may be safely ignored.
