SQL Server 2019 Installation Issues (WMI)

Copper Contributor

Does anyone know how to resolve this issue? I have been searching for solutions all night, and I just really need to install this for my college course. My errors state "The Windows Management Instrumentation service cannot be started" and "This machine is clustered, but the cluster is not online or cannot be accessed from one of its nodes".

You need to share log folder from below path. 

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\150\Setup Bootstrap\Log


Since you might have attempted multiple installs the log folder might have lot of folders. Feel free to delete all folders from "log" folder, run setup again and let it fail. Whatever is generated, zip log folder again and share.
