I have a SQL Server MAchine with 3 instances.
I can't get the SQL Server Agent Service to Start.
The account was temporarily set to use a Domain Account but that password expired. I enter the current password but it fails.
I tried using the NETWORK Server Account the the Local System Accounts but regardless of the account that I use the server fails to start.
I get a message that the request failed or the service did not respond in a timely fashion. Consult the event log or other applicable error logs for details.
There are no entries in the SQL Log file.
In the Windows System Even Log there the following error for each attempt regardless on the Account that I use.
The SQL Server Agent (MSSQLSERVER) service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not start due to a logon failure.
It is not critical because this is a Development Server and the particular instance is barely used so if I have to reinstall SQL Server I will do so but I was hoping to find the source of the problem and correct it.
