Performance Logs & Alerts service failed

The Performance Logs & Alerts service failed to start due to the following error:
The account specified for this service is different from the account specified for other services running in the same process.
1. Configured  Performance Logs & Alerts service with a domain account but this service is dependent on RPC event as its a cluster server.
2. Granted access to Domain account as Local Admin
3. Unable to start service

I also tried with local service account ...service started but unable to connect perfmon via ODBC with error
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Login failed for user

You would need to use the service on which perfmon depends to also start with the same domain account ... which it seems what the error is.
You do not need to make performance and alerts service shifting with the cluster if you use a remote log/alert collection from a system that is not part of the cluster and use the cluster name as well as the clustered application name to collect data..

Other services are running under "Local service"  and "Network services" I tried both. Service is starting "Local service" account but not able to connect remote computer to collect perfmon data in the database.
ODBC with error

When you defined the ODBC connection is it using windows login, or does it use SQL credentials?

Enable trace on the ODBC connection to see what is going on.

I got the solution thats bit tricky.

Just run the Perfmon counter using run_as (desired login) and that resolved the issue.
