I was trying to install System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) 2012, but there is an error with the SQL Server version installed on my computer. The log is showing Exception “Error Code 0x80131501”.
I posted the exact error message that I encountered.
The version of SQL Server on this computer is either not supported or could not be validated because of an issue connecting to the WMI provider. For a complete list of the supported SQL Server versions and editions, see "Operations Manager 2012 Supported Configurations" in the TechNet library.
