1899842 - SAP MMC shows incorrect status or DCOM errors are raised


  • The Windows service SAP<SID>_$$ is running ("<SID>" is the "system ID" and "$$" is the number of the affected instance);
  • At the SAP MMC, the "Dispatcher" process stays in "yellow", although the system is running fine. At the "Description field" you see "dialog queue info unavailable";
  • The SAP MMC doesn’t show information about an instance. The instance has a red crossed circle in its icon (see the screenshot below). You see DCOM related errors at the Windows Event Viewer, which were created around the time you’ve opened/interacted with the SAP MMC.


You’ve already checked the SAP KBA 1586315, however the issue persisted.



  • Product independent
  • SAP running on Windows servers
  • Client/Server Technology - Startup Service
