I have a n+1 cluster running Windows 2003 sp2 64-bit and Sql 2005 64bit.
When I use perfmon all the counters for the instances that are not running on
the active node return a value 0.  For example if Node A has Sql instance A
and Node B has Sql insatnce B, when I run perform on Node A I only get values
reurned for Sql Instance A and for Sql instance B the counters are always 0.
Is this by design or is there a fix for this?
