SYMPTOMS

The Exchange Server computer does not have the Performance Monitor counters, Incoming Inter-Site Replication Updates/sec and Outgoing Inter-Site Replication Messages/sec available to monitor the directory service.

The Perfdsa.dll file is not upgraded when Service Pack 3 (SP3) is applied. The Perfdsa.dll file was not included in the CD image of SP3.

WORKAROUND

Manually replace the Perfdsa.dll file from build 2651.47 or later. After you replace the Perfdsa.dll file, reload the counters. To reload the counters, follow these steps:
  1. Open a command prompt.
  2. Type the following command, and then press ENTER: cd c:\exchsrvr\bin
  3. Type the following command, and then press ENTER: cd unlodctr msexchangeds
  4. Type the following command, and then press ENTER: cd lodctr dsactrs.ini
The next time you start Performance Monitor, the counters can be viewed. Perform this procedure on each bridgehead that you want to see the counters on. You do not have to restart Directory Services.
