SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You create a clustered Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MSDTC) resource on a Windows Server 2008-based failover cluster.
  • You add some performance objects in Performance Monitor.
  • You monitor the performance counter instance for the Distributed Transaction Coordinator performance object. This performance object provides information about the clustered MSDTC resource.
In this scenario, the performance counter instance does not function as expected. Therefore, you cannot monitor the performance metrics of the MSDTC resource by using Performance Monitor.
