I have 2 SQL Servers in a Domain. Windows Firewall is disabled on both servers and there is no hardware firewall. Both servers are in the same subnet.
One server, called Controller is configured as a Distributed Replay Controller. The other sever, called Client is configured as a Distributed Replay Client.
The Distributed Replay Controller service is started, but when I try to start the Distributed Replay Client service, I get the following error in the Client Log:
[0xC8100005 (6)] Failed to connect controller with error code 0x800706BA.
In the Windows System log, I see the following error:
DCOM was unable to communicate with the computer controller using any of the configured protocols; requested by PID 830 (C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\120\Tools\DReplayClient\DReplayClient.exe).
The same account is running both services and this is actually a Domain Admin (Yes I know that's bad practise, but its a sandbox environment), and I have checked that the account specifically has the following DCOM permissions set on the Controller:
Local Launch Local Activation Remote Launch Remote Activation Local Access Remote Access and Full Control for configuration
Both servers running Windows Server 2012 Datacentre and SQL 2014 Enterprise
I have even tried giving the Domain's Eveyone group these permissions.
I have even rebuilt the Controller.
The servers can ping each other via both IP Address and Name
