Running META ( exchange troubleshooting Assistance on Cluster servers) producing error
“Failed to find directory “\\ExchangeServerName\c$\Perflogs’ on the server”
- Click on Hide advance data collections options
- Go to Data Directory on the server
in here place the IP address of the CMS server as shown below
|Node 1 ( Physical)|
|Node 2 ( Physical)|
The problem is if you do , on one of the nodes if you click on run and do double back slash
\\CMSName\e$\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.
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
