OMSA 5.0: DSM SA Data Manager Service does not start. Error 261

After installing OpenManage Server Administrator 5.0 to a PE 2650 the DSM SA Data Manager service fails to start. I get the following message:
 
"Windows could not start the DSM SA Data Manager on Local Computer. For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code 261."
 
On the Event Log I get Event ID 7024: "The DSM SA Data Manager service terminated with service-specific error 261."
 
I have already tried reinstalling the software but I get the same results.
 
Any help will be appreciated.

Try running MSConfig go to services and then hit disable all Non-Microsoft services. After this uncheck everything this will put you in a pseudo safe-mode. From here reboot and then try manually starting that service.

Hello,

In my case it was sufficient to kill a running omreport.exe process  to be able to start the DSM SA Data Manager service.
