Hi Roberto,

Is that service started up? If not, try starting it and see what it gives you.

Also make sure you're using a local service account for the DLO account as per the best practices below:

Hi CraigV,

Thanks for your reply.

In the current server, we use an account with administrative privileges as see the picture below.

Are there any services not listed that I can check? is correct, I use some services with the Local System account and the other with the administrative account?

Thank again.

OK, so these all conform to the TN below:

Can you stop and start all the BE services, including the SQL service?

Also, run a repair of the BEDB using BEutility. Sometimes it gets corrupted (either a bit, or totally), and this will fix a number of issues that can be experienced.
