NTDS performance counters missing

NTDS performance counters missing

Thought I’d doc this for any others who run into this issue.  I had to demote/promote a machine this morning and when it finished promoting I found it was missing all the NTDS\* counters in perfmon. 

I ran LODCTR /Q and saw that it looked wrong:

 

C:\Windows\system32>lodctr /q:NTDS
Performance Counter ID Queries [PERFLIB]:
    Base Index: 0x00000737 (1847)
    Last Counter Text ID: 0x00001792 (6034)
    Last Help Text ID: 0x00001793 (6035)

Looking into it further I found it was missing the whole performance key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NTDS\Performance

 

Once I found that, I exported the performance registry key from another domain controller and imported to the server missing the values and ran LODCTR /R and then the counters were back where they belonged…

 

C:\Windows\system32>lodctr /q:NTDS

  • Thanks sooo much.  This was driving me crazy trying to figure this one out.

  • Ditto.  This was a huge save for me.  Now I just need to figure out why they were missing!!

  • What would be nice is a reason why this issue would crop up on a freshly minted server. Thankfully this still works for 2012 servers.
