MSExchange Common 106 Log Entries Post SP1 UR2 update

    Question

  • From what I can tell, the update rollup 2 killed most of my performance counters. I have a ton of MSExchange Common 106 errors in the log files. According to another post here, the resolution is for the RPC perfmon counters.

    My issue is this: I have way more than just the RPC counters that are in error. Below are just half a dozen of them, with only the first couple lines...

    Description:
    Performance counter updating error. Counter name is Max Effective Time In AddressBook Per Minute, category name is MSExchange Throttling. Optional code: 3. Exception: The exception thrown is : System.InvalidOperationException: The requested Performance Counter is not a custom counter, it has to be initialized as ReadOnly.

    Performance counter updating error. Counter name is Max Effective Time In CAS Per Minute, category name is MSExchange Throttling. Optional code: 3. Exception: The exception thrown is : System.InvalidOperationException: The requested Performance Counter is not a custom counter, it has to be initialized as ReadOnly.

    Performance counter updating error. Counter name is Max Effective Time In MailboxRPC Per Minute, category name is MSExchange Throttling. Optional code: 3. Exception: The exception thrown is : System.InvalidOperationException: The requested Performance Counter is not a custom counter, it has to be initialized as ReadOnly.

    Performance counter updating error. Counter name is Requests Per Second, category name is MSExchange ResourceHealth. Optional code: 3. Exception: The exception thrown is : System.InvalidOperationException: The requested Performance Counter is not a custom counter, it has to be initialized as ReadOnly.

    Performance counter updating error. Counter name is Named Property cache misses., category name is MSExchange Middle-Tier Storage. Optional code: 1. Exception: The exception thrown is : System.InvalidOperationException: The requested Performance Counter is not a custom counter, it has to be initialized as ReadOnly.

    Performance counter updating error. Counter name is Base counter for Named Property cache misses., category name is MSExchange Middle-Tier Storage. Optional code: 1. Exception: The exception thrown is : System.InvalidOperationException: The requested Performance Counter is not a custom counter, it has to be initialized as ReadOnly.

    I can fix them according to the process here: http://blogs.technet.com/b/mikelag/archive/2010/09/10/how-to-unload-reload-performance-counters-on-exchange-2010.aspx

    However, my question is this. How do I determine which XML files to unload/reload into the registry? I am having a difficult time determining from the logged errors, which performance counter matches the error. There are 86 counters in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Setup\Perf directory!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Still looking for help on this one...

    FYI, we are seeing errors on only the primary mailbox server, not on our secondary (passive DAG copy).

  • Throttling counters -> ThrottlingPerformanceCounters.xml

    Resource Health counters -> ResourceHealthPerformanceCounters.xml

    Middle Tier counters -> MiddleTierStoragePerformanceCounters.xml
