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





SQL Server Configuration Manager – Cannot connect to WMI provider – 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]






Occasionally, during setup, some .mof (Managed Object Format) files don't get installed or registered correctly.  There is a program called mofcomp that is responsible for registering and storing the data associated with .mof files.  If the .mof file information becomes damaged or compromised, or never installed correctly, the problem will result in an error message like above:



Solution:

Mofcomp "%programfiles(x86)%\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Shared\sqlmgmproviderxpsp2up.mof"
