Unable to connect to machine

Remote performance monitoring of one Windows 2003 server from another that had been working for many months suddenly stopped working. The only thing that had changed was a local administrator account password on the remote system.

In hopes of getting more information as to why remote monitoring was failing to start, I start up Perfmon and try to create a counter for the remote system. It reports "Unable to connect to machine". I was hoping for something more specific.

So, I try from a Windows 2008 system. It gets slightly more specific with "Access is denied."

While it is generally a good idea to not disclose details about failed authentication attempts, a bit more info could be helpful in resolving this problem.
