We have a Windows Server 2003 R2, which is also our Exchange 2003 server. Perfmon used to work fine on that machine, as it does on our other servers. At some point it stopped working. I'm unable to determine just when because it's not a tool I use regularly.
By "not working" I mean that the red line that normally scrolls left to right just stays on the left hand side and none of the traces are produced. Asking it to record a log also fails, with nothing actually getting recorded. It makes no difference which or how many counters are enabled. To make matters even more difficult, nothing is logged into the Windows event logs.
On and off over the last couple of months I've researched this and learned that it's not too unusual a problem. Unfortunately, solutions are few and far between and nothing I've tried has helped. Following various Microsoft KB articles to recreate the counters from scratch has changed nothing.
Any suggestions? Thanks.
