So I was adding a new named instance to one of my servers. These instances are just data repositories that get rebuilt every night, so they're not backed up or anything. I set the SQL agent to disabled while setting it up.

I was using the copy database wizard and realized the package wouldn't work because the agent wasn't running (error told me as much). When I try to go into SQL Server Configuration Manager and change the start mode from "disabled" to "manual", when I hit apply I get this error:

WMI Provider Error
The remote procedure call failed. [0x800706be].

This is a Windows Server 2008 R2 enterprise server running SQL Server 2008 R2 SP2.

Anyone seen that before?

SQL Server Agent is a dependent service on SQL Server Service. Try getting into 'Service Manager' and change it to automatic.
