PSU service not able to start using GMSA

Product: PowerShell Universal
Version: 3.2.6

Created a GMSA account for my PSU service, which have been granted permission for the server as well. The service is able to find my GMSA account, but wont start.

Only thing I get in event manager is A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the PowerShell Universal service to connect.. PSU log files does not show any useful.


Do you run SQL persistence? Then you should ensure that the correct permissions are present on the SQL server as the service will fail to start before logging to file.

Alternatively you can start a prompt as the gMSA using PsExec and run the server executable directly, any errors should be printed to console then.
