Can you show on server 2 the full registry of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\PerfDisk
And just double checking, drive D: exists on SERVER2, right?

Commented:
Yes, drive D: exists on Server2 and I can create a test Excel file in drive D:

On server2, check if the remote registry service is running. Also do a reboot just to be sure.

Remote Registry was running.
Reboot server 2. Then Remote Registry is not running. I started Remote Registry.
Retried the Test-SRTopology command and got the same error.
