Unknown Service (Log On Tab)

Microsoft SQL Server Configuration Manager is unable to identify this service.

SQL Server Configuration Manager receives service information from the WMI provider on the computer running the service. Either there was an error while reading the service properties, or the service properties are not complete. To resolve the problem, try closing and reopening SQL Server Configuration Manager, or check the WMI provider on the computer running the service.

The WMI provider is a Windows component. For information on how to check permissions on the WMI provider, see "How to: Configure WMI to Show Server Status in SQL Server Tools" in SQL Server Books Online.

If you believe you are viewing the correct service, use the Log On tab of the Unknown Service Properties dialog box to specify the account used by this service, and to start and stop the service.
