Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a number of User Defined Data Collector Sets running on a Windows 2008R2 server, collecting perfmon stats from various servers.

Whenever there is a network interruption, or a server rebooted (at worst, when the server which is running all these DCSs is rebooted), I have to manually restart some or all of the Data Collector Sets.

Is there a way to configure them to automatically restart, or otherwise be more resilient?
