Solution for Resolving the Error

  1. Click Start-> Run on the SQL Server running Windows 2008 R2 and input the command GPEDIT.MSC. The Policy Editor will appear.
  2. Expand “Computer configuration” – > Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Local Policies -> Security Options from the Policy Editor.
  3. All security policies are displayed in the right-hand window. Make the following two policies adjustments.
  4. Domain member: Encrypt secure channel data digitally (when possible) – Turn off this policy
  5. Domain participant: Secure channel data should be digitally signed (when possible) – Turn off this policy
  6. Close the policy editor and reboot the box after making these changes. (Not SQL Server, but the entire system should be restarted.)
  7. Also, have you checked the event log and SQL Server error log to see if there is a problem with SQL Server and Active Directory domain communication?
