Enable and change FILESTREAM settings...

I am following the instruction from:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc645923.aspx#enabling

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.

Thank you.

Try the instructions in this link perhaps:

p.s. Right above the heading in the MSDN article, you can select the SQL version...

In this case, the version difference is not an issue I believe.
