Consider the following scenario:
Error communicating with component
When SQL Server is not installed on the site server, the computer name of the site server is appended to the name of the SQL Server backup service. Therefore, the actual service name is "SMS_SITE_SQL_BACKUP_The-name-of-the-Site-Server" instead of "SMS_SITE_SQL_BACKUP."
The ConfigMgr Service Manager tool queries the service name by using Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI). The Component Manager provider (Cmprov.dll) returns SMS_SITE_SQL_BACKUP as the service name. This name does not match the actual SQL Server backup service name on the remote site database server.
