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.

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.
