Is there a way to dump the DCOM settings for a given DCOM object on the command line, if the GUID is known? (Maybe using PowerShell)

I can't recall anything built in but a few uses of reg query /s ‹path› over the usual places (HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppId\‹GUID›, ...) shouldn't be too hard to put together. In PSH It would be more work because Get-ItemProperty to get the values doesn't have a recursive option, so a combination of Get-ChildItem -recurse and Get-ItemProperty would be needed. – Richard Jul 20 '12 at 9:12

I've never done it but it looks like you could use the comadmin class to begin exploring the administrative interfaces ( $comadmin = new-object -com "comadmin.comadmincatalog" )

See for an overview of the comadmin namespace
