decoding underlying reason for not making PC a hub RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • As I have seen reported a few time, I have been encountering the issue of not being able to make a PC a hub, even after clean installations of both underlying OS and OneCare. The OneCare support log indicates this:

    Failed with Error 80048876 while elevating User Brant Gurganus to Monitor Mode

    Does anybody know the meaning of this error code?


    Rebooting and/or trying again will allow me to make the PC a hub, but that does not tell me why it isn't working the first time. That is what I want to figure out.

  • I would imagine that Monitor Mode is another way to say that your User running OneCare will be a hub to monitor the status of the other PCs in the Circle. I don't know the meaning of the specific error code you found, though. I'll see what I can find.

    You agree with what I thought Monitor Mode meant, but it is the error code I'm curious about.

  • I sent an email to someone on the OneCare team to ask. I assume that it is some sort of authentication error.
