SQL Server Agent crashes - internal error in the .NET runtime RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone,

    We have an SQL Server 2017 (RTM-CU16) running on Windows Server 2019 Standard x64 OS.

    We reboot our server weekly, for maintanance. Usually there were no problems, except from the last reboot. The SQL Server started up with no issues, however the SQL Server Agent crashed during startup, with the following error in the application event log:

    event ID: 1023

    Application: SQLAGENT.EXE
    Framework Version: v4.0.30319
    Description: The process was terminated due to an internal error in the .NET Runtime at IP ... with exit code 80131506.

    The startup type for the SQL Server Agent service is Automatic. Start-up for SQL Server took a little less than 1 minute.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thank you!
