I have right-clicked on the sql server name in the studio manager and stopped the sql server to be able to copy my mdf files to my external storage.
After trying to open my sql server again I got a message saying not able to open it "a network related error..."
I went to programs/sql server configuration manager to start the stopped server, and got the following message:
"Cannot connect to WMI provider. You do not have permission or the server is unreachable. Note that you can only manage SQL Server 2005 servers with SQL Configuration Manager.
Invalid Class [0x80041010]"
What do I do?
