    When encountering issues with a new installation of System Center Virtual Machine Manager failing to start, it’s essential to troubleshoot the underlying cause. Let’s explore some steps to address this issue:

    -Check Permissions:

    Ensure that the service account used for VMM has appropriate permissions.

    Verify that the SQL Server service account has access to Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS).

    -SQL Server Permissions:

    Permissions are required both on the local server (where VMM is installed) and on the SQL Server.

    On the SQL Server, add the service account as a database owner (DBO) for the VMM database.

    -Install Cumulative Updates:

    Check if your SQL Server version requires any cumulative updates.

    Install the necessary cumulative updates on your SQL Server.

    -Matching Versions:

    Ensure that the VMM console version matches the System Center version of the VMM server.

    For example, if connecting to a VMM server running System Center 2022, use the VMM console version 2022.

    You can refer to the official Microsoft documentation on installing VMM and installing the VMM console
