services not list in sql config mgr RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    On one of the sql server machine, when I open the sql server configuration manager, I am not able to see sql server services.

    But if I open start->run->services.msc, I can see the services there. Why It is not showing up in SQL Server Configuration Manager, Anyone faced it ?

    SQL Server 2016 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

    Thanks,

    Sam

  • Can you check if you have multiple versions of SQL Server and you are trying to look about higher version services in lower versions SSCM, I loosely remember to face same thing before. Like if you have SQL Server 2017 and you are looking in SQL Server 2012 SSCM.

  • It should be fine as long as they show up in services.msc.

  • That would be my guess as well. For some reason, two versions os SSCM can be installed, and one need to be careful to run the most recent.
