thanks for the help.
well , i reboot the server and all services are up.
maybe it can help , but that machine previously had qv8 server and a publisher 8
(the publisher never worked beacause of no iis was available to install).
the install of 9 removed the server but not the publisher so i uninstalled it manualy...
Next, I would try uninstalling everything QV related, Delete QV authorizationg group, run untility and remove everything you see QV related, rebbot system, install QV9 from scratch, rebbot system, try management console.
Something it is easier to redo the install than spending time to fix it.
Some suggested reading around Managment Console assistance:
