What is error 0x20000 from DCOM RemoteCreateInstance? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I wrote some session code to access WMI through DCOM. I mostly tested it with one Windows 2008 server and I am now testing it on other severs including older Windows versions. It works on at least 2 servers. On some servers, I am getting error 0x20000 from RemoteCreateInstance. I can't find this error documented anywhere (such as [MS-ERREF] or Bing/Google). can anybody help?

  • I must admit that it looks like the error is on my side. I  repeated the request and viewed a network capture of the session. On this server, the actual response code was success. My code seems to be misinterpreting the response. I thought that I had checked this before but I have worked with many sessions and network captures. Maybe there was another problem that I fixed. Sorry for wasting time.
