Since my original post on issues with the SCCM agent and WMF 3.0. We have only uninstalled the WMF 3.0 update on systems that created major issues or have documented compatibility issues. I have found the WMI queries don’t report SQL Server data correctly.
Here is the Microsoft KB on how to fix this problem.
the common symptom I see is when attempting to run an application install that uses WMI to query the SQL version or any other information the setup wizrd reports either SQL is not installed or SQL is not the correct version.
