Storing data in the repository…

MofComp is a command line utility to compile MOF (Managed Object Format) files and store the data in WMI repository. The MOF Compiler is available in the %Windir%\System32\wbem directory. So if you are getting “‘mofcomp’ is not recognized as an internal or external command then try changing current directory from command prompt to %Windir%\System32\wbem

Also note that in mof file on my machine is under 120 folder. Depends on SQL version installed, you may have it in different folder. The value of that number depends on the version of SQL Server.
