Just been doing some load testing over the weekend on the production boxes. For weeks I have been collecting resource usage CPU etc from the windows server in the UAT environment. So, I thought let’s just change the machine name and collect all the same stats. Alas, it didn’t work as I did not have the correct privileges. On the UAT box I could login and run perfmon manually but on the production box I had not been given access.
Moral of the story. Remember to get this set up before you are the only person in the office on a Sunday.
