Recently a site administrator installed a SQL2000 server on Windows 2003. For some reason the perfmon counters for SQL do not show up when trying to check performance. How should these counters be added and/or activated post-installation? In the IT trenches? So am I - read my IT-Trenches blog

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This is a known issue with SQL 2000.

Stop anything that is trying to read the perfmon counters.

Restart the SQL Server service.

Start the monitoring service that is trying to read the perfmon counters.

Sometimes if something is trying to read the perfmon counters when SQL starts it isn’t able to create the counter objects. And the only way to get it to try again is to restart the service.
