Since I have jobs and stored procedures that need to write to network locations, I run both SQL Server and SQL Server Agent under local Windows accounts. I entered the accounts in the Configuration Manager letting it to set up all the security. The only problem I have is that the SQLServerAgents sometimes terminates unexpectedly and the SQLServerAgent Monitor fails to restart it. This is the error in the Windows Event Log:

SQLServerAgent Monitor failed to restart SQLServerAgent after SQLServerAgent terminated unexpectedly (reason: SQLSCMControl() returned error 5, 'Access is denied.').

I set up the agent recovery in Windows Services, but I still prefer it to be done between the SQL Server and the Agent.

I suspect the SQL Server account is missing some Windows permissions. What permissions shall I check/add?

The permissions needed by the service accounts are listed in the following document:
Configure Windows Service Accounts and Permissions

To be honest, you're working on the wrong problem. You need to find out what and who is causing the "Access Denied" errors because it could be illegal attempts to access data. The SQLAgent is trying to protect you and you're trying to override that protection.

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

When you put the right degree of spin on it, the number 318 is also a glyph that describes the nature of a DBAs job. Wink

I understood that the "Access is denied" is the reason why the SQLServerAgent Monitor failed to restart the SQLServerAgent. It doesn't come from the agent. The agent is lying dead at that time.
