Fixing the last 2 problems with my Search Server Express - DCOM error 10016 (application settings do not grant Activation Permission form COM) and Gather warning 2436 for Search Services on my home server

 

Obviously when I wrote the last blog entry on installing search server, not quite everything was working, although I did not realise it until a few errors appeared in the event log. The errors appear below - one is a DCOM permissions error and the other is a Gather error.

The DCOM error

Event Type:	Error
Event Source:	DCOM
Event Category:	None
Event ID:	10016
Date:		09/11/2007
Time:		06:35:26
User:		NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE
Computer:	HOMESERVER
Description:
The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID {61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1}
 to the user NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE SID (S-1-5-20).  This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.
For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

Fixing the DCOM error is all about setting permissions in the DCOM system.  The magical application was IIS WAMREG admin Service.  I worked this out by following the instructions in the KB article at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/920783.

The Gatherer error

Event Type:	Warning
Event Source:	Windows SharePoint Services 3 Search
Event Category:	Gatherer 
Event ID:	2436
Date:		09/11/2007
Time:		06:50:19
User:		N/A
Computer:	HOMESERVER
Description:
The start address <sts3://homeserver/contentdbid={d067c159-4b98-4bb4-85d9-0d440121788b}> cannot be crawled.
Context: Application 'Search index file on the search server', Catalog 'Search'

Details:
	The object was not found.   (0x80041201)

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

This error relates to the fact that we have removed the search from http://<servername> and added a different virtual server name.  If you look at http://www.kevincornwell.com/blog/index.php/windows-sharepoint-services-wss-30-search-setup-notes/ then you will see that you need to also change the Alternate Access Mappings.  Do this and your event viewer errors will go!
