Perfmon Category Error


I was trying to setup monitoring on a server that I have called "exchange001", which is a valid name and it can be pinged through the network. When I put it in the Host field and try to select a Category I get the error "Cannot Refresh category list: Input string was not in correct format". I just wanted to see if anyone could help me out with this or if this is because there are numbers in the name of my server. If so, it would be great to be able to use numbers or even an IP address (You can do this when you connect to another computer in Computer Management). Any help is appreciated!
Thank You,
Zach Crawford

A number in the host name should not be a problem - many of my servers have such appended numerics and seem to work fine.
I'm just not sure what the issue could be. Have you made sure that the credentials you are using for PolyMonRT has admin access to the server you are trying to monitor? Usually an Access Denied error is reported but this could be related.
