I hope someone can help. I think I'm going insane. I just read an article to diagnose some RAM issues with Active Directory. (See Here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc268214.aspx
In this article they mention running the "Performance and Reliability Monitor" (RPM) to diagnose the issues. I can't for the life of me find any such tool.
In researching the web, I find that it should be in the Administrative Tools. I've also found it can be launched by running Perfmon. Every article I run clearly identifies the tool as "Performance and Reliability Monitor".
The only thing I see in Administrative Tools is "Performance Monitor", which is also what runs if I run the command "Perfmon".
Every screenshot I see of Performance and Reliability Monitor clearly shows the text "Performance and Reliability Monitor" in the left hand tree/pane. All I see is "Performance Monitor" when launching this myself.
Am I insane? Did this tool get renamed or something? What am I missing here?
Furthermore, if I do launch Perfmon, I get an MMC snapin that looks identical to the RPM, however I'm having additional troubles. For instance, I'm trying to run some of the "Active Directory Diagnostics" under "Data Collector Sets -> System". When I click the green arrow to start the collecting, the green arrow turns grey and disappears as if it's running, however the Stop error never shows up, which would signify I cannot STOP the collecting. I'm left with nothing to do. If I close perfmon and repeat, the green arrow shows up again as if I never pressed it to begin with. If I attempt to start, I get the same results. Nothing.
I hope someone can please help. I've tested this on at least 2 of my 2008 R2 servers.
