Actually the error is (note spelling mistake on fashion):
"Connection to target machine could not be made in a timely fasion"
One of our DBAs was testing the SQL cluster failover. After he failed over from Node 1 to Node 2, he can no longer bring up SQL Server Configuration Manager (SSCM). Whenever he tried, he will wait for about 30-40 seconds before he gets an error message : Connection to target machine could not be made in a timely fasion
This could have been caused by a whole host of things.
In our case, all we had to do was to restart WMI service:
- Start > Run > type services.msc and press Enter
- Scroll down to Windows Management Instrumentation, right click, restart
