i am following the below instructions from MS website, but i do not have Reliability and Performance showing, all i have is Performance-Monitoring Tools-Performance Monitor in Win2008 member server:

To open Reliability Monitor in Microsoft Management Console
1.Click Start, click in the Start Search box, type perfmon, and press ENTER.

2.In the navigation tree, expand Reliability and Performance, expand Monitoring Tools, and click Reliability Monitor.

i understand i can use perfmon /rel to have it displayed, but i'm studying for the exams and want to ensure i know all the ways to access this.  I cannot find anything under roles/features that will allow me to see it in this way.  why is Reliability and Performance not showing up and how can i get it to be displayed in this way without using perfmon /rel?

    Accepted Solution

    I will assume your training material is for Windows 2008 -- and all the current exams are 2008 R2.  Reliability and Performance monitor went back to Performance Monitor in 2008 R2.  The second link provides more information on the new Reliability monitoring components.

    ah, ya gotta love MS for not making an R2 Training Kit when the test is actually on R2.  Now i know i'm not going crazy.  Thanks so much...
