I have also seen this message - but has never caused a problem and I'm not really concerned by it at all  - because our web server is also the discovery server.

 If the discoverysever name is not mentioned in the xml files that drive dbpopulator.exe then the tool defaults to the webserver. Then this warning is thrown. Since the CRM deployments usually have both discovery service and crm sdk service running on the same box, it will not affect the output. The problem arises only if discovery service is on a different box than the crm service.
