The service was started and then stopped

Sql server agent service issue: My junior DBA met me on an interesting issue. Sql service account is not able to start the Sql server agent whereas Sql server service is running. When he tries to start sql agent service then he gets following issue:

“The request failed or the service didn’t respond in a timely fashion. Consult the event log or other application error logs for details.”

“The service was started and then stopped”

Along with technical learning I would like to share some great articles for anyone interested in the betterment of his/her family life
