Solution:
I tried the below approach and it worked fine for me. In the Server Configuration wizard for the SQL Server Database Engine service by default, the account name comes as “NT Service\MSSQLSERVER and it looks like below:

Then I changed the above account to NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE account and it worked fine for me.


You can try various approaches but this approach worked fine for me.

Hope this will be helpful.
