I've been trying to follow Brent Ozar's PerfMon tutorial as recommended on this site, but it was written in 2006 so there have been a few changes since then.

I'm running perfmon on my local machine (Windows 7 SP1) because the tutorial said to, and am trying to connect to a server in the same domain (2008R2 SP1 64 bit). I can find the server and appear to be able to authenticate ok (I'm in the Administrators group on that server), but when I try to select Counters, I get Error: unable to connect to machine. (That's the whole message.)

My username and password are definitely correct. What have I missed? What is the reason not to do this on the server itself, and therefore bypass this issue?

Thanks very much.

Thanks; I didn't post a screen shot because it was basically a tiny text box that said "Unable to connect to machine". No error number, nothing else, just those words, so I didn't think a screenshot would improve understanding.

I can't add the counters because I can't connect to the machine.

Thanks; yes, I've done all that. Googling suggests a possible firewall issue, but I don't want to get the networks team involved if I can help it.

I can run perfmon fine on the server itself; is there any reason I should NOT do this? Brent's tutorial specifies not to, but not why- and also it is 7 years old so things may have changed. If I can run it on the server then that solves my immediate problems.

Thanks again.
