Starting Point - Archetype Machine - Multiple Error with Kali

My problem is I don’t get responses consistantly from SQL>.
For example:

SQL> SELECT is_srvrolemember(sysadmin');

doesn’t return a 1 most of the time. Sometimes it does. Thus when I move to the next step for xp commands I always run into issues.

Resetting hard and soft and VPN connection provide no luck. This is a starting point machine and I would think I wouldn’t have any issues with Kali 2022.1, but alas I also have to alter smb.config too. I understand HTB supports parrot, but I digress.

I am hoping someone can help as I want to finish Starting Point in it’s entirety.

Many thanks
