Failed to find directory “\\ExchangeServerName\c$\Perflogs’ on the server

Filed under: General — telnet25 @ 5:00 pm

Problem:

Running META ( exchange troubleshooting Assistance on Cluster servers) producing error

“Failed to find directory “\\ExchangeServerName\c$\Perflogs’ on the server”

Fix:

  • Click on Hide advance data collections options
  • Go to Data Directory on the server

in here place the IP address of the CMS server as shown below

wincms

192.168.1.100

CMS IP

scc1

192.168.1.101

Node 1 ( Physical)

scc2

192.168.1.102

Node  2 ( Physical)

The problem is if you do , on one of the nodes if you click on run and do double back slash

\\CMSName\e$\Perflogs    ( in this example per flogs folders in being created on E drive) you get errors as shown below

If you do same with IP address instead of name , you will see the directory is accessible.

\\192.168.1.100\e$\PerfLogs

This is why the META isn’t working , you will need to make sure the IP is there as shown below

To be honest I was not able to determine the root cause, the DNS and WINS appears to be working correctly in this situation.

Anyways the goal is to make META happy (-: and move on  this will be one way of doing it
