How to Connect to SQL Server Configuration Manager Remotely

Very neat approach which I didn’t know up until today. Here is the link from Microsoft.

However, I am still struggling with a server where either local or remote configuration manager fail to report correct statuses of all SQL Server related services. The error message are simple text “The remote procedure call failed. [0x800706be]” locally and “Cannot connet to WMI provider. You do not have permission or the server is unreachable. Note that you can only manage SQL Server 2005 servers with SQL Server Configuration Manager.”

I am striving to find out a solution and will definitely update this post if I do.
