hi,

From my windows server 2008 r2 I'm try to remotely connect using perfmon to a windows server 2012 r2 datacenter box.  Both are on the same network and I've turned off the windows firewall of the 2012 r2 machine.  After finding the computer in the network list and clicking ok it comes up with "the parameter is incorrect".  I've attached a screenshot.

Simple limitation of monitoring a newer OS wihpth an older tool. 2012 R2 is returning data that the 2008 R2 tool doesn't know what to do with. You'll need to monitor locally or from another 2012 R2/8.1 machine.

I just tried the same thing from a server running 2008 r2 to a serve running 2008 r2 and I'm getting the same error...

For the same OS monitoring, I was able to get it working my enabling network discovery.
