I need to collect baseline performance data on a SQL Server running on Windows Server 2008 R2. When I open perfmon on my computer running Windows 7 and try to add counters from the remote server, I receive an error stating "Unable to connect to the machine."
I can ping the server, and I can connect using Remote Desktop.
In addition to the perfmon issue, I cannot browse shares (e.g. \uncpath\c$), connect to the remote registry, or connect to port 445 over telnet.
I'm on the same subnet as the server, and the Windows Firewall is turned off on both the server and my computer.
