Windows 2012 R2 Dcomcnfg fails to expand Computer objects

    Question

  • Windows 2012 R2
    VMware 6.5
    My Windows 2012 R2 Server is a VM on my ESXI Host 6.5
    It also runs SQL 2014  Enterprise and is clustered with another Windows 2012 R2 Server running SQL 2014

    The other day on the server I received an event 10016 DCom error.

    So I went in to the registry and found the ID's and added administrator to the security tab.

    The next step is to run DCOMCNFG  expand Component Services the expand Computers.

    When I try to expand Computers I get nothing displayed and the MMC hangs

    I have to use task manager to kill the process.

    Any ideas why I can not see the objects under computer?

    I even ran as administrator and no luck.

    Thanks

    Thanks for posting

    This is a fresh built server.

    Unfortunately I do not get to the My Computer screen. 

    When I try to expand computers it hangs the MMC  I must kill the process 

    any thoughts?

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I have found a link about DCOM event ID 10016 logged in Windows:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4022522/dcom-event-id-10016-is-logged-in-windows-10-and-windows-server-2016

    In addition, according to my knowledge, a server run SQL would have high CPU and Memory. Could you please check the Task Manager like following picture when the issue occurred:

    It may result to unable to expand [Computers].

    If this issue is urgent, I suggest you to contact experts from the following forum to get professional support:

    Hope above information could help you.

    Thanks for your understanding.
