    1) I have to install the OEM agent and deploy the sql plugin on a sql server 2000. The instructions say 'install and enable windows management instrumentation (wmi) provider of the sql server. Enable support by running the setup.exe file located in the sql server installation cd (<CD drive>/x86/other/wmi). How can I tell if this has already been installed and enabled?
    2) Is WMI provider installed and enabled in SQL Server 2005 by the default intsallation?
