Hi Alex

Thank you for your case number.
While you wait for an answer, can you check if WMI works properly? If not, a WMI reset may be required.

I checked C:\Windows\System32\wbem\Repository\Objects.Data is only 27 mb

Ran command: winmgmt /verifyrepository and got
WMI repository is consistent

However when I opened Computer Management and check Properties under WMI Control and got error message:

Failed to initialize all required WMI Classes.
Win32_Processore: WMI Invalid Class
Win32_WMISetting WMI: Invalid Class
Security InformationL Succesfull
WIn32_OperatingSystem: Invalid Class


Just wondering if that points to WMI Corruption?

Hi Alex

Yes, looks like there are issues with the WMI repository.
You may use the following kb from Microsoft for further troubleshooting.

Thank you. Issue is resolved.
I was able to create a backup job after rebuilding the repository.

Steps taken:
1. Run command: Winmgmt /resetrepository
2. Reboot Server.
