I have 6 machines:
- 2 x Windows 7 32-bit (W71, W72)
- 4 x Windows 2008 R2 64-bit (W2k81, W2k82, W2k83, W2k84)
I want to access the W2k8 machines' performance monitors remotely from the W7 machines.
It is only a testing environment, so:
- the machines are not in a domain, but they all belong to the same workgroup
- they all have an account with the same name that is member of groups:
- Performance Log Users
- Performance Monitor Users
- all firewalls have been turned off
- the following services are confirmed to be running on the W2k8 machines:
- Remote Registry
- Performance Logs & Alerts
- Performance Counter DLL Host
- Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
I can connect remotely from W71 to W72's performance monitor and vice-versa. However, no computer can connect remotely to any of the W2k8 computers' performance monitors.
EDIT: I forgot to mention that the error I get when connecting to a performance monitor remotely is:
When attempting to connect to the remote computer the following system error occurred:
No such interface supported
FURTHER EDIT: I am trying to access the remote computer by right-clicking on Performance > Connect to another computer... and providing the IP address of the remote computer:
I am open to any suggestions.
POSSIBLE SOLUTION: Apparently, I can access the remote computers' counters not as described above, but by specifying a remote computer's IP address (or name) when adding a new counter:
