Changing default DCOM permissions

          I finally got my problem with the Trend Micro WFBS console on an 
SBS 2003 fixed. I had to follow steps 1-3 from Microsoft KB article 319624, 
method 2, reproduced below. I was reluctant to do this, because the article 
is for Windows 2000 Server, but it seems to have worked. I am queasy, 
though, because I checked another SBS 2003, and the default impersonation 
level is set to "Impersonate," just as it was on the problem server before I 
made the change that fixed the WFBS console. What are the ramifications of 
this change? What am I sacrificing? I just am not comfortable with manually 
messing around with default settings that I normally do not have to change 
at all. Why would one server need this change and another not need it? Why 
does SBS 2003 default the way it does?

Method 2: Verify the DCOM permissions
This method involves changing the DCOM default impersonation level to 
Identify, removing the Msisip.dll file, and then reinstalling SP 3 for 
Windows 2000.

To do this, follow these steps:
  1.. Click Start, click Run, type dcomcnfg, and then click OK.
  2.. On the Default Properties tab:
    1.. In the Default Authentication Level list, click Connect.
    2.. In the Default Impersonation Level list, click Identify, and then 
click OK.
  3.. Click Start, click Run, type explorer /select, 
%windir%\system32\msisip.dll, and then click OK.
  4.. Rename the Msisip.dll file as Msisip.old.
  5.. Reinstall Windows 2000 Service Pack 3.
