SQL Server Configuration Manager – Cannot connect to WMI provider – Invalid class [0x80041010]

When I am trying to connect to my SQL Server 2008 box using SQL Server Configuration Manager today, the following error dialog pops up…

Cannot connect to WMI provider. You do not have permission or the server is unreachable. Note that you can only manage SQL Server 2005 and later servers with SQL Server Configuration Manager. Invalid class [0x80041010]

Cannot connect to WMI provider. You do not have permission or the server is unreachable. Note that you can only manage SQL Server 2005 and later servers with SQL Server Configuration Manager. Invalid class [0x80041010]

 

I have never seen this before!… while the following line saves me.

>> Open an elevated Command Prompt, and type the following…

mofcomp.exe "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Shared\sqlmgmproviderxpsp2up.mof"

mofcomp "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Shared\sqlmgmproviderxpsp2up.mof"
