SQL Server configuration manager : The request failed or the service did not respond in a timely fashion. Consult the event log or other applicable error logs for details.
I referred both above questions on stack overflow and tried every solution. But nothing worked for me.
I know this exact question has been asked on stackoverflow before, but none of the answers to them solves this error for me. I am trying to resolve this error for 3 days now.
