System Center 2012 Operations Manager – Setup – Database and WMI provider

I was trying to install SCOM 2012 in my lab environment but at the database wizard in the setup I getting an error after checking the SQL server name and instance.

The error was that I was using an unsupported version of SQL Server or WMI provider was not working. That’s was very strange, because I’m using SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1 with CU6. This Service Pack and CU6 is recommended for SCOM 2012 (SP1 beta).

I got this error in the log file. This log file is located at C:\Users\%username%\Appdata\Local\SCOM\Logs\OpsMgrWizard.log.

OK, this is odd. I’m using SQL Server 2008 R2 with Service Pack 1 and CU6 and this version is supported by SCOM. This must be a WMI error then! After researching on the Internet I have found this tool to solve the problem

Run this tool for SQL server. Command is: mofcomp.exe “C:\program files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Shared\sqlmgmproviderxpsp2up.mof”

You will get this message. After this message you are able to continue the setup. =D
