I am following the instruction from:
I am working with SQL Server 2008R (the above is for SQL Server 2012) assuming the process is the same.
There are 13 steps in this link. At the very first step:
1, On the Start menu, point to All Programs, point to Microsoft SQL Server Code-Named 2012, point to Configuration Tools, and then click SQL Server Configuration Manager.
I am getting an error stating "Cannot connect to WMI provider..."
Q1: How can I find out whether the Filestream is already enabled or not?
Q2: How can I deal with this error (see the attached image)?
FYI: Per MCTS 70-433 Training Kit, I am trying to Enable FILESTREAM settings to install some sample databases from the companion CD provided with the book.
