Windows 2019 Server Event Id 2004 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows 2019 DataCenter  running SharePoint 2016 Farm 2 Nodes   Front End and Application/Search

    Both are VM's on Vmware 6.7 ESXI 6.7 Hosts.

    I have other Windows 2019 Data Center Server running also.

    On the Two with SharePoint I get this event error everyday on both Nodes.

    Log Name:      Application

    Source:        Microsoft-Windows-PerfNet

    Date:          12/30/2019 6:11:22 AM

    Event ID:      2004

    Task Category: None

    Level:         Error

    Keywords:      Classic

    User:          N/A



    Unable to open the Server service performance object. The first four bytes (DWORD) of the Data section contains the status code.

    Event Xml:

    <Event xmlns="">


        <Provider Name="Microsoft-Windows-PerfNet" Guid="{CAB2B8A5-49B9-4EEC-B1B0-FAC21DA05A3B}" EventSourceName="PerfNet" />

        <Execution ProcessID="0" ThreadID="0" />



        <Security />






    As you can see by the date that's how long I have seen this error.

    I have not found any valid information on the web to fix this error condition.

    Any ideas or suggestion would be helpful

    Thank you
