Cannot access DFS Replication performance counters


Running Windows Server 2003 Enterprise edition on 2 servers with a single DFS Replication group set up.

In trying to run a DFS Diagnostics Report for the replication group, I am presented with the following report results:

Cannot access DFS Replication performance counters.
Affected replicated folders: All replicated folders on this server.
Description: The DFS Replication service is unable to access the performance counter DFS Replicated Folders(Inetpub-{C6167E0E-EB45-4459-A081-156BD93F3F7E})\File Installs Succeeded on SV3069. Performance data is unavailable. Error ID: 0x800007d5.
Last occurred: Sunday, April 26, 2009 at 1:38:34 PM (GMT-5:00)
Suggested action: For information about troubleshooting this problem, see .

I have run WMIDiagnostics to resolve several permissions issues, but nothing I have done has changed the results of the DFS Report.

I've followed to repair the WMI to no avail.

Please help.

Try the following

1. Enable the Remote Registry service. The default configuration for the Remote Registry service is startup type Automatic and set to log on as NT AUTHORITY\LocalService.

On the machine that has the problem try running the following to confirm if the counters can be accessed:
wmic path Win32_PerfFormattedData_Dfsr_DFSReplicatedFolders

If you get an error:
Code = 0x80041010
Description = Invalid class
Facility = WMI

Stop DFSR service:
net stop dfsr

then run the following command to refresh the performance counter classes:
wmiadap /f

Start DFSR service:
net start dfsr

Run the above command again to confirm that the class is registered:
wmic path Win32_PerfFormattedData_Dfsr_DFSReplicatedFolders

Rerun health report to confirm that the error is gone.

Thank you! I had looked at the Remote Registry Service but didn't think it was required to be running. FIgures.
Hello. I am having the same issue, however, after performing the steps in the solution, I still get the same error: 0x80041010

Is there something else (or somewhere else) I need to look at?
