SYMPTOMS

After you restart a server, the following error message may be logged in the System event log:
Type: Error
Source: DCOM
Category: None
Event ID: 10002

Access denied attempting to launch a DCOM Server. The server is: {9DA0E10X-86CE-11D1-8699-00C04FB98036}. The user is SYSTEM/NT Authority, SID...

CAUSE

This issue occurs because the Microsoft Search (MSSearch) service starts before the Web Storage System starts, and the Microsoft Search service tries to automatically start the Web Storage System by using distributed COM (DCOM). The Web Storage System is secured to prevent programs from starting the Web Storage System with DCOM; therefore, an error is recorded when the Microsoft Search service tries to do so.

The Web Storage System does not allow programs to automatically start the Web Storage System, to prevent it from being started without the server operator's knowledge when the server operator has stopped it for maintenance or other reasons.

IMPORTANT: Do not change your DCOM settings to allow programs to automatically start the Web Storage System.

MORE INFORMATION

These DCOM error messages are benign, and you can ignore them. As noted in the "Cause" section of this article, do not change your DCOM settings to prevent these error messages from being logged.
