We are running GF b5 on Windows 2008 R2 SP1. We've setup DCOM between the DAS and several nodes. I've run through all the previous postings regarding DCOM and it validates succesfully using a domain account which has admin priveledges on all the machines.

Our issue is that if i start an instance from the admin server on a remote node using DCOM it appears to ignore the domain account i've configured. If i run a JVM report on the instance its says the is MACHINENAME$ (which im guessing is the local node's system account) - unfortunately this account does not have any network access so any applications fail to start.

Everything else seems to work from DCOM (config changes etc) - its just the starting of an instance from the admin server that shows this issue.

Using a windows service wrapper directly from the node host does start the instance with the correct account but does not pull any conifguration changes down.

Anyone experienced the same issue or have any tips on how i can get this fixed? Thanks
