I found out I am missing many WMI classes, specifically needed Win32_OperatingSystem from root\cimv2.  I have many other classes that are missing on the specific server.  I was wondering what is the best way to re-register these classes, non-intrusive way, if possible.

Did you try this command to rebuild WMI? (It will ask for the 2008 R2 DVD)

rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection WBEM 132 %windir%\inf\wbemoc.inf

I ran this to fix the issue in the WBEM directory.

FOR /f %s in ('dir /b /s *.dll') do regsvr32 /s %s
Net stop /y winmgmt
FOR /f %s in ('dir /b *.mof *.mfl') do mofcomp %s
Net start winmgmt
