Unable to access Overview of 2008 R2 Server on Windows Admin Center.

Copper Contributor

Planning to migrate our 1 File Share server which is running on Server 2008 R2 to Server 2019.

Using the new Server 2019 as an Orchestrator Server. Installed the Windows Admin Center on the Server 2019.  Upgraded the WMF on the 2008 R2 server to 5.1. Currently able to connect to the 2008 R2 server on the Admin Center however unable to view the Overview tab. Getting messages as: " Install WMF 5.0 or greater"  "Performance class not found". 

I uninstalled and reinstalled the WMF on the 2008 R2 server and reinstalled the Admin Center as well.

Still getting the message. Anyone have any clue on how to fix this.?

I don't have direct experience with managing 2008 R2 Servers from WAC but according to Microsoft, there's limited functionality supporting that version of Windows Server.
