While writing my previous blogs about SQL Server Configuration Manager, I encountered another error. In this blog, we would learn one of the possible causes of error 0x80010108 – The object invoked has disconnected from its clients.
Here is the screenshot of the error message.
When I searched for the hex code on the internet, it was saying RPC_E_DISCONNECTED and looks like that is the code of the text of the message. When I looked back at the series of action I did, the error was reproducible.
- Open SQL Server Configuration Manager (SSCM).
- Click on SQL Server Services to view the list of services.
- Stop Windows Management Instrumentation Service using Services applet (Start > Run > Services.msc)
- Switch back to SSCM and refresh the services.
- You should see the error “The object invoked has disconnected from its clients. [0x80010108]”
Once you close and reopen SSCM, it should automatically start WMI service and we should be able to see the list of services again.
We simulated the error by stopping WMI Service manually. So, whenever you see such error with SQL Server Configuration Manager, you should figure out why WMI service was stopped. You can start with Event Viewer to know if there are any other interesting events.
