The Farm is unavailable Error – while running stsadm

Another day, when I was trying to activate a feature by running STSADM, it resulted with an Error message to me saying: “The Farm is unavailable”

The Farm is unavailable Error - while running stsadm

The cause of this issue is: I was running STSADM under an account which doesnt has the access to SQL Server!

Once I ran the command again with another account which has the access to SQL server (Server Roles: DBCreator & Security Admin) it went well!
