Cannot access DFS Replication performance counters

Hello,

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 http://windowsxp.mvps.org/repairwmi.htm to repair the WMI to no avail.

Please help.

Hi,

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.

====================================================================================
2.
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:
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?

thanks!
