Possible Cause Invalid configuration in SQL Server Client Network Utility
Recommended Action

Run the command *cliconfg.exe* it will launch SQL Server Client Network Utility click on Aliases tab if there is an alias with IP address modify it to use host name and ensure it is using TCP/IP. If you still see issues try using Named Pipes. Go to General tab and enable Named pipes and move it up the order. In the Alias tab, add an alias which uses Named Pipe. Select the Named Pipe radio button from the left, in the Server alias text field type hostname\CRSSQL. All other text fields will get filled automatically. Click OK and close the window. After that try to start the SQL Agent again.
