RE: Reliability Monitor not working...
Ok... I figured out how to get it working:
I basically followed the steps outlined elsewhere which is:
1. Go to Control Panel and then Folder Options
2. Show Hidden Files and Folders
3. Show (unhide) Protected Operating System Files
5. Navigate to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\RAC
6. Double click PublishedData and delete all entries
7. Back out one level and then go into StateData
8. Delete all entries
9. Go back two levels to the RAC folder
10. Right click and select Properties
11. Go to the Security tab
12. Create FULL CONTROL (or at least MODIFY) permissions for the LOCAL
SERVICE (you will most likely have to add LOCAL SERVICE to the list of
13. Click Apply and OK as necessary to exit
14. Open a command prompt WITH ADMINISTRATOR PRIVILEGES (Run as
Administrator) (right click on command prompt and select Run As Admin)
15. Type RACAgent
16. This will take anywhere from 30 seconds to a few minutes to perform
depending on how involved things are
17. Voila! Reliability Monitor and Stability Index are working once again.
18. DON'T FORGET to go back into Control Panel...Folder Options and undo
what you did to unhide the hidden files and such.
THis worked for me. I'm not sure if it will work for everyone.
