Workaround for these errors:

On TechNet forum “Tommy” has given a workaround to stop getting these errors and get the IIS settings in EMC, thanks to him to share this with us.

On Windows 2003/XP machine –> Go to Start –> Run –> dcomcnfg

image

Component Services –> Computers –> My Computer –> Properties

image

Default Properties –> in Default Impersonation Level: set Identify to Impersonate –> Apply – OK

Edit (08/07/08): After changing this DCOM configuration you need to reboot the XP/2003 system to make it effective. Thanks to Andy Grogan for this update.

  4. Hi
    Thanks for the useful info.

    I experience the same error message also on the win 2008 machine ( active node of a win 2008 CCR cluster) running exchange 2007 SP1 rollup3.

    The only account that successfully processes get-owavirtualdirectory is Administrator (account that we used for installing the exchange )

    Other accounts are members of domain admins group.

    Thanks in advance! /Pei-Teh
