Help, I cannot configure my SQL Server 2005!!
Posted on 2007-11-30
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)
->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!
