WMI won't repair

I received one ticket depicting for below issue for one of our server, I was not able to install patches through SCCM. "Can't connect to namespace in WBEMTest or WMI Control in Computer Mgmt (Properties state invalid namespace) - Please get WMI working so SCCM client can install"

After lots of of troubleshoot Logged a case with Microsoft and they gave me below suggestion. and Wmi started working again.

Re-register all the WMI DLLs and MOF files and rebuild the repository.

for /f %s in ('dir /b *.dll') do regsvr32 /s %s
for /f %s in ('dir /b *.mof *.mfl') do mofcomp %s
regsvr32 %windir%\system32\tscfgwmi.dll
wmiprvse /regserver
winmgmt /regserver
