Failed to find directory “\\ExchangeServerName\c$\Perflogs’ on the server

Problem:

Running META ( exchange troubleshooting Assistance on Cluster servers) producing error

“Failed to find directory “\\ExchangeServerName\c$\Perflogs’ on the server”

Fix:

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

wincms
192.168.1.100
CMS IP
scc1
192.168.1.101
Node 1 ( Physical)
scc2
192.168.1.102
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.

\\192.168.1.100\e$\PerfLogs

To be honest I was not able to determine the root cause, the DNS and WINS appears to be working correctly in this situation
