I am trying to Configure the Master target server / Multi server environment in Sql Server 2012.

I changed :

 - `MSXENCryptChannnelOptions`-->Changed from 2 to 0
 - `AllowDownloadedJobsToMatchProxyName` - changed from 0 to 1 on the target

When I run the wizard I am getting below error

>MSX Enlist failed for Job Server 'MasterServerName'

>The enlist operation Failed(Reason:SQL Server Agent Error: Unable to connect to MSX 'MasterServerName'(Microsoft Sql Server, Error : 22026)

They both servers SQL Agents are running on the same windows service account.

Any Suggestions on how to fix this?

**Adding the Log:**

Updating existing MSXOperator.

- Make sure the Agent service for 'Test3' is running (Success)

Checking to see if the startup account for 'Test4' already exists.

hi SmilingLily,

you can try to run the SQL Agent under a domain account.
