How to fix 'SQL Configurartion Manager'?


I'm have a problem with sql server configuration manager send the error "Cannot connect to WMI Provider. You do not have permission or the server is unreachable. Note that you can only manage SQL Sever 2005 and later servers with SQL Server Configuration Manager. not valid class [0x80041010]"

Are 2 instances installed in the server, I've tried:

1.- Edith regedit in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT{73E709EA-5D93-4B2E-BBB0-99B7938DA9E4} add user "evereyone" with full control.

2.- Restart server.

3.- Add full control to user everyone in the path "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\120\Shared\"

4.- Start cmd how administrator and execute: mofcomp "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\120\Shared\sqlmgmproviderxpsp2up.mof"

5.- But return error: "MOF file has been successfully parsed Storing data in the repository… An error occurred while processing item 10 defined on lines 73 – 79 in file C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\120\Shared\sqlmgmproviderxpsp2up.mof: Compiler returned error 0x80070005Error Number: 0x80070005, Facility: Win32 Description: Access is denied."

I used to get the same issue, and would run this at the command line:

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

seems you left off the .exe in your example, could that be it? This fix has worked multiple times for me on multiple versions (while obviously changing the path to the appropriate version).

Best of luck!
