- WMI Connections to the root\Microsoft\SqlServer\ComputerManagement10 namespace was successful. However, any queries against this namespace produced no results. The results were not an error, they were just empty.
- SQL Server Configuration Manager showed no SQL Server Services as being installed.
Background Information:Prior to the problem, a request was made to allow a non-Administrator (via a group) to control the reportserver service state. This was achieved using a group policy.
Computer Configuration > Policies > Windows Settings > Security Settings > System Services
The service was configured as Automatic startup and the group was assigned rights to the service with the ability start, stop, and pause the reportserver service. A policy refresh was performed and the user was able to manage the service successfully.
