Whenever I try to open Activity Monitor through SSMS on a particular instance, I'm greeted with the message - "Category does not exist."

This happens only on this instance, and for any client.

What is your SP/Patch Level?

What is the OS?

Do you have a central server?

Do you use PBM?

SQL Server 2008 (10.0.1600.22)

Windows Server 2008

This is the central server.

No policy-based management.

are there other servers being managed by this central server that are > SQL Server 2008 RTM? My first recommendation would be to get that server patched.

No, there aren't. I'll patch this server when I get the chance.

Thanks,

That "could" be your problem in that you are using 2008 R2 version of SSMS with 2008 server.

Thanks,
