Unable to add a Host in Performance Center

When adding a host on PC 9.x it shows the credentials popup, the event viewer shows the below error

Event Type: Error

Event Source: DCOM

Event Category: None

Event ID: 10016

Date: 8/29/2011

Time: 1:26:03 PM


Computer: KCH1D068


The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Launch permission for the COM Server application with CLSID {7E89FF0B-F649-4F9A-A9C3-F05DFAAA3DA1} to the user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM SID (S-1-5-18). 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.

This is because the DCOM server has no permissions to start

To fix this issue modify the DCOM permissions:

Start -> Run -> dcomcnfg

Expand Component Services, expand Computers , expand My Computer , expand DCOM Config

Right click on SMS Agent Host , click Properties

Select the Security tab, click Edit in the Launch and Activation Permissions section

Select System , ensure Local Launch is Allowed

Click OK, Click OK
