System Log/DCOM Error

    Question

  • <article class="topic-body" style="width:1040px;">

    Hey Guys,

    When Running a dcdiag today I noticed that I'm getting this error.

    * The System Event log test
            An error event occurred. EventID: 0x0000272C

                Time Generated: 07/11/2018 14:31:31

                Event String:

                DCOM was unable to communicate with the computer mail1.my.domain using any of the configured protocols; requested by PID   4fa0 (C:\Windows\system32\taskhost.exe).

            An error event occurred. EventID: 0x0000272C

                Event String:

                DCOM was unable to communicate with the computer xchg.my.domain using any of the configured protocols; requested by PID   4fa0 (C:\Windows\system32\taskhost.exe).

            ......................... MCPDC1 failed test SystemLog

    Mail1 and xchg no longer exist. I deleted them from Active Directory a while ago, and they're not in DNS either. Any idea what's cuasing this? It's also causing a DCOM error to show in Event Viewer about twice a day. Thanks!

    Hi,
    Exchange is pretty well rooted in AD (depending on its version). How did you removed the exchange machine from the directory?

    I'm pretty sure that I just went in to AD, right clicked on mail1 and clicked delete. I'm not sure about xchang as that one was done before my time here.
