Unable to find PerfMon Counter. Make sure all BBW* host instances are started.

I'm getting this error when attempting to run a test.

Unable to find PerfMon Counter. Make sure all BBW* host instances are started. If you lost the counters, this post might help you recover counters:\n<"http://blogs.msdn.com/biztalkperformance/archive/2007/09/30/how-to-manually-recreate-missing-biztalk-performance-counters.aspx"

I've checked:

1. All hosts are started
2. Perfmon counters via Perfomance Monitor
3. Tried reinstalling counters using http://blogs.msdn.com/b/biztalkperformance/archive/2007/09/30/how-to-manually-recreate-missing-biztalk-performance-counters.aspx
4. Recreated hosts from scratch

Any other ideas what could be causing this problem?

Can logging be turned on in the Wizard to see exactly where it is failing?

Thanks

I am also getting this error and have tried the same 4 steps above with no success. Any help much appreciated.

Thanks,

This problem was solved by ensuring

  • The user running the Benchmark wizard has the permissions to add performance counters on the remote machines.
  • The Remote Registry Service is enabled on the remote machines.

I am getting the same error.

I've tried everything listed in this discussion and still recieve the error.  I have BizTalk Server 2010 running on server A, which I also run BBW on.  Then I have the Indigo service running on server B.  Does this sound correct?  I have administrator rights on both servers and the Remote Registry service is running on both servers.   Any suggestions would be appreciated.  Thanks!

You could try getting the source code from this site and put in some extra logging. That's what I did to discover the permissions issue.

It turned out to be a network access issues for me - http://genuinebasil.com/blog/?p=275
