Hello.  I am trying to configure my SQL Server 2005.  When I go to "Surface Area Configuration for Services and Connections" I get a error message stating, "Computer localhost does not exist on the network, or the computer cannot be configured remotely.  Verify that the remote computer has the required Windows Management Instrumentation components and then try again. (SQLSAC)

Additional information
  ->An exception occured in SMO while trying to manage a service. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo)
    -> Failed to retrieve data for this request. (Microsoft.SqlServer.SmoEnum)
      -> Invalid class (System.Management)


Does anybody know how I can fix this problem?  I have had this problem since I installed SQL Server 2005 and I never got it to work the way I wanted it to and I cannot run any scripts.  Thank you!

Is the MS SQL Server service running on that box?

Yes it is.  And by the way, I submitted points for all the other questions.  This is the only question that is currently open.  How do I set it so that I can install tables, etc remotely on my sql server.  SQL Server is extremely annoying.

Are you running SQL Server remotely or locally?  In other words is the SQL Server service running on the same box as SQL Server Management Studio or a different one?

As an fyi, everytime I try to run a script or something to install tables, a database, etc. into SQL Server I get an error most likely because of the way SQL Server is setup.

So the SQL Server service is running, but the SQL Server Surface Area Configuration does not seem to recognize it?  If that is the case, I am afraid I have no idea, so I would resort to uninstalling and reinstalling SQL Server 2005 in the hope that it will resolve it.  If not perhaps you should consider calling MS Product Support.

I uninstalled SQL Server 2005.  I also uninstalled any instances that were on my machine.  I reinstalled SQL Server 2005, created a new Instance and did Mixed Mode Authentication and everything seems to work now.  Thanks for the tip.

SQL Server needed to be uninstalled and reinstalled.
