I am gettening a "Unhadled excpetion" error , every time I try to start
SQL server agent?? I am using remote desktop connection to server. I am not sure if this actually matter. I am connecting to the server with an admin account. The account role is set to be "sysadmin".

When I look at the "SQL server agent" error log, this is what I see:

I solved it.

Right click on Server Server Agent. Select "properties". Go to connection. Under "Alias local host server" I deleted whatever was there (I had server name there, which is the only instance), and left it empty!

Now SQL server agent starts fine!!

I am having the exact opposite problem

When i remove the FQDN from the alias the service will not start and I get the below error messages: one in Windows application log and the other in the agentout log

SQLServerAgent could not be started (reason: Unable to connect to server 'MyServer\instance'; SQLServerAgent cannot start).

2017-07-21 08:54:04 - ! [298] SQLServer Error: 802, SSL Provider: The target principal name is incorrect. [SQLSTATE 08001]

Any help is appreciated
