Just got this at my client, its normal message. See it way to often, generally I run into this when the multiple version of SQL Servers are installed. So decided to do a bit of research on this, namely why does it happen? Some reasons include …
- A SQL Server instnace on the server was uninstalled inturn it uninstalled shared compontents relarting to WMI.
- During SQL Server installation WMI doesn’t get registered successfully.
Its easy to fix, as per KB956013, execute following command and restart WMI Services.
mofcomp “%programfiles(x86)%\Microsoft SQL Server\number\Shared\sqlmgmproviderxpsp2up.mof”
If executed successfully you should see a successful message. If you get an error, make sure you are running the command prompt as Administrator.
