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


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.


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