I've got a server 2008 SP2 box. We recently have been having issues with monitoring (nagios) and traced it back to perfmon and the WMI performance adapter on the server. The WMI performance adapter service stops itself after about a minute of being started with the following vague error -
The WMI Performance Adapter service terminated with the following error:
In perfmon I'm missing basic counters like logical disk, system, and memory. Without these counters our nagios monitoring isn't working. I have already tried to rebuild the counters with 'lodctr /R' and using the steps here http://blogs.technet.com/b/yongrhee/archive/2009/10/06/how-to-rebuild-performance-counters-on-windows-vista-server2008-7-server2008r2.aspx to no avail. The commands complete successfully and I've rebooted the server but still no basic counters.
Any ideas? TIA!

Sorry for the delay in reply. The problem may occur if certain Perfmon Counters were corrupt and the 'lodctr /R' command failed to repair. Have you also checked the below MS KB?

Do you have any update on this case?

Without any changes the services just started working properly.
