Reliability Monitor is Empty in Server 2008

On some installation of Server 2008, the Reliability Monitor does not record data.  The instructions below are from Microsoft and I’ve tested them out.  They do work.

 

  1. Click Start, type Task Scheduler in the Search box, and then click Task Scheduler.
  2. Enable the trigger that regularly starts the RacTask task.
    1. In Task Scheduler, expand Task Scheduler Library, expand Microsoft, and then expandWindows.
    2. Right-click RAC, click View, and then click to select the Show Hidden Tasks command.
      Note If the Show Hidden Tasks command is already selected, go to step 2c.
    3. Double-click RacTask.
    4. In the RacTask Properties dialog box, click the Triggers tab.
    5. On the Triggers tab, double-click the One time trigger.
    6. In the Edit Trigger dialog box, click to select the Enabled option, and then click OK.
    7. In the RacTask Properties dialog box, click OK.
    8. Close Task Scheduler.
  3. Update a registry setting.
    1. Click Start, type Regedit in the Search box, and then click Regedit.
    2. In Registry Editor, set the value of the following registry entry to 1:

      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Reliability Analysis\WMI\WMIEnable

  4. Restart the computer.
