Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista

You can view Reliability Monitor data on a remote computer using Microsoft Management Console (MMC) if you have sufficient credentials on the remote computer and if the Remote Registry Service is enabled and running on the computer you want to access.

  2. In the list, right-click Remote Registry, and then click Start on the context menu.
