Repairing a corrupted COM database.Locked
We have a Windows Server 2003 system, we are using NTBackup for our system backups…these backups are failing. The backup report is as follows:
Active backup destination: File
Media name: “Temp Thursday Backup.bkf created 6/11/2010 at 8:36 AM”
Volume shadow copy creation: Attempt 1.
Timeout before function completed
Error returned while creating the volume shadow copy:0xffffffff.
Error returned while creating the volume shadow copy:ffffffff
The operation did not successfully complete.
Additionally, two events are created in the Application log:
Event ID: 20
Event ID: 8193
Event ID 20 flat out says that the COM+ database is corrupt, event ID 8193 indicates a problem with the COM+ infrastructure.
I have the procedure to repair a corrupted COM+ catalog (re-registering several dll’s, deleting the COM3 registry key, renaming clbcatq.dll and reinstalling COM+); my question is…might following this procedure affect programs installed on the server, i.e. Kerio Mailserver, Symantec Corporate, etc?
