    I am getting the following message on my 2K3 SP1 DC:

    ComputerName=MEC-DC-1 Logfile=System Type=Error SourceName=DCOM Category=0
    CategoryString=Not specified EventCode=10016 EventID=-1073731808
    TimeGenerated=20050428152750.000000-300 TimeWritten=20050428152750.000000-300
    Message=The machine-default permission settings do not grant Local Activation
    permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
    to the user NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE SID (S-1-5-20). This security
    permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.

    Ok, so I should add the NETWORK SERVICE account to the security permissions
    of 'netman', but how?? This is a domain controller - part of the process of
    promoting the Windows 2003 server is that it removes all local
    accounts...including "Network Service".

    I fixed it by upgrading my domain PDC emulator to 2k3 - then Network Service
    was available from the domain accounts list.
