SQL Server stopping for no apparent reason
Posted on 2001-08-24
A client has SQL Server 7 (service pack 3) running on NT 4 Terminal Server service pack 6 when the system is under load (the server not the database, there are only 5-6 users) the SQL server service stops and generates the following message in the log:
SQL Server terminating due to 'stop' request from Service Control Manager
I found a MS knowledge base article Q185806 but this applies to clustered servers for SQL 6.5. Any help / suggestions?
