SQL Server Configuration Manager, WMI Error 0x80041010

August 4, 2014 Leave a comment

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.
