The account, that executed the System Center Configuration Manager installer must be added as BUILTIN\Distributed COM Users.

If the account is e.g. the <DOMAIN>\Administrator, it is not sufficient. You than have to add the <DOMAIN>\Administrator> to the BUILTIN\Distributed COM Users on the database server and restart the Windows Management Instrumentationservice.
