  • Are you using the express edition? Don't assume, go verify the edition by executing the command SELECT @@VERSION. Express does not support the agent.

  • The first place to look for more information is the agent error log. For future refernece, you should choose the most appropriate forum for posting your question. This is not related to database design.

  • Hi Sabebe,

    Please check your SQL server agent log and Windows event to get some useful error information. Please check the start mode of your SQL server agent service, you can set it to Automatic mode. What is your SQL server agent service account? Please try to change it to Local system or domain admin account.
