I want to monitor performance counters on my Windows 7 Machines from Windows Server 2012.
Right now, I have two Windows 7 machines that can monitor each other's performance counters no problem. To allow access, I have started the Remote Registry service and added Everyone to the Performance Log Users and Performance Monitor Users groups.
The problem is, if I try to add performance counters from either of these machines in Server 2012, I get the error message "Unable to connect to machine". The Windows 7 machines show up under the search and their names check out, but I am unable to get a listing of the counters. I have disabled the firewall on the Windows 7 machines for good measure, but still have the same results.
Does anyone know if I can monitor Windows 7 performance counters from Server 2012 or have any insight into the problem?
