Unanswered: SQL Server Performance Monitor Counters
I've always assumed SQL Server performance monitor counters get automatically installed when SQL Server is installed. I recently installed SQL Server on a remote server and noticed the SQL Server performance monitor counters do not appear in Perfmon. Aren't these counters automatically installed during setup?
I took remote control of the server using Carbon Copy and performed the installation by running setup from a file server containing the software. I installed SQL 2000 on Windows 2000 server. I just ran across an article on the Microsoft web site regarding missing counters. I'm going to see if one of their suggestions helps.
