What is preventing Agent Service from starting after:
- Failing to install CU.
- Running a successful repair after disabling HIPS.
Background: Installing CU's for Microsoft SQL Server I found I have an issue with the security software on my system.
After disabling the offending security software preventing my installation of patches and the repair process afterwards, I now have an issue with restarting the agent service.
Error during repair states:
Microsoft SQL Server #### Setup The Following error has occured: The process cannot access the file 'C:\windows\system32\perf-MSSQL13.MSSQLSERVER-sqlagtctr.dll' because it is being used by another process. Click 'Retry' to retry the failed action, or click 'Cancel' to cancel this action and continue setup.
I am thinking I do not need to repair the service just yet, but something will need to be fixed.
