When you open a .blg (counter log) file in Windows Server 2003 System Monitor, the SQL performance counters that you saved are missing.
Your System event log may contain a message, similar to the following, for each counter that was NOT saved:
Event Type: Warning
Event Source: SysmonLog
Event Category: None
Event ID: 2028
Description: The service was unable to add the counter '\\<ComputerName>\<CounterName>'
to the log or alert. This log or alert will continue, but data for that counter will
not be collected. The error returned is:
The specified object is not found on the system.

2. Double-click Performance Logs and Alerts.
