We just upgraded our developer machines from 32 bit Windows XP to 64 bit Windows 7 Ultimate. With Windows XP we were able to do a live monitor of the CPU usage of servers that resided on a separate domain from our developer machines. We would use the following NET USE command to get authenticated to those servers.
NET USE *server_ip* /USER:*domain\user_name* password
Unfortunately we are unable to get Perfmon in combination with NET USE to work through Windows 7. The servers we are trying to monitor are running Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2003. We receive the following error when trying to connect to these servers.
Unable to connect to machine
Does anyone know how to monitor the CPU usage of remote machines on different domains through Perfmon in Windows 7?
