W2K connecting to EMC SAN, run diskperf - Perf Object Counter doesn't exist

This isn't a Novell Case, it's a Microsoft case that I worked on. I'm doing more and more Microsoft support.

Windows 2000 SP4 connecting to EMC SAN. Doing sizing and running Disk Performance. diskperf -yv - Performance monitoring per disk. Expect to see physical disk and Performance Object Counter is not there. In the picture on this blog on my server, it's there, but the customer wasn't seeing what I was seeing.

Solution ==================
pcrwizard.exe - downloaded from Microsoft, required open Case.
This tool fixed corrupt DLL's for Performance Object Counters
This tool is not available for direct download. However, you can use the following article to rebuild your performance counters:

300956 How to manually rebuild Performance Counter Library values
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=300956

Alternatively, we did contact Microsoft Support Services and request to speak with a Support Engineer in the Platforms Performance group to get the Performance Counter Rebuild Wizard (PCRW) tool that automates the process.

If you need this tool, contact me.
