I had disable my windows firewall and antivirus but the issue are not resolve. I also tried to grant the permission from my SCCM SQL server and IIS for SMS is working fine if the service is running. Besides below are the error log when the service stop.

did you check that your Computer has the Rights like requested?

Sounds like you have something scheduled in the environment that runs every hour.


Have you checked the IIS logs to see what 500 error you are getting?
