COM+ Applications security settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • What are the proper security settings (with regard to event id 10016) for the four COM+ Applications seen when you run:


    comexp.msc, Console Root, Component Services, Computer, My Computer, COM+ Applications


    Three of the four seem un-modifiable.


    Or, should I not be concerned with such things?

  • Hi,


    Generally, it's no need to modify any of the COM+ Applications.


    Besides, if you could tell us the details of the issue, I think the community members could share some more experience with you.

  • Hi Doc,


    Just for your reference, the following KBs about the Event ID 10016 may help you resolve this issue.


    Event 10016 may be logged in the System log on a computer that is running Windows XP Professional x64 Edition

    Event ID 10016 may be logged in the System log on a computer that is running Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1

    Event ID 10021 and event ID 10016 occur after a site reset or after an SMS 2003 service pack installation on a site server running on Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 or Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2


    Hope it helps.

    None of the above.  Vista Ultimate SP1.  The error only occurred after SP1 installed.


    Does not seem to cause a problem, but I would like to understand what it is and how to make it go away [properly].

    Ok, it seems to be complaining about:


    The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID

    which is the Machine Debug Manager.


    This only occurred after SP1 was installed on Vista Ultimate.


    Any ideas?

    Ok, it seems that I am not the only one getting event 10016:




    What is the proper way to correct this event?

  • Hi,


    Have you tried the solution that add Administrators user group to the group "NT Authority\Local Service"?

    No, I have not "tried" anything.  I prefer to use established, tested solutions from the manufacturer of a product rather than the "try this, try that, reboot, hit-and-miss, stab-in-the-dark" suggestions from people that do not understand, or are incapable of, the "Art of Troubleshooting and Debugging".  Hacks and patches have a way of hanging around, being forgotten, and causing problems later.


    The error occurs on more than one of my machines and, apparently, other users machines as well.


    Let's see if we can determine what the cause is, and then develop a proper fix, rather than "trying" to make the problem go away by adding potentially unnecessary permissions.  From a security perspective, adding permissions that may not be required opens doors that do not need to be open.
