I keep getting an error that windows performance monitor could not obtain counters (none of them) when I setup a performance monitor counter log file (capturing data of counters in a log file)using a windows 2000 professional client.
Basically, the job that obtains the counters into a log file cannot start, and error message in the application error log is that it could not obtain the counter.
The environment is as follows:
- windows performance monitor run in a windows 2000 professional client, LOGGED IN with an account that belongs to the ADMINISTRATORS group of the sql server (described below).
- the sql server that is the source of the performance monitor counters is a CLUSTERED sql server 7.0 SP3 with an OS of NT 4.0 SP6
I believe the problem is on NT security.
Can anyone please help?
