Bypass recovery mode

Whenever I try to start the SQL2000 sevice, I get the error "table tempdb in bypass recovery mode" and the process is terminated... It started when we first received the message that the transaction log for the 'tempdb' database was full although it was set to grow and ample space was availiable (2GB).  We created a second log and this message appeared... HELP!!!

It should be as easy as deleting the tempdb.mdf and the ldf file--SQL Server will recreate them on startup.  If SQL Server doesn't want to recreate them, take a look at traceflags (3607, 3608 and 3609)

Hi Brett

The files were deleted ....and SQL2000 recreated them, but then the services stopped showing the same error "Could not run begin transaction in database 'tempdb' because the database is in bypass recovery mode"

based on the above  the service cannot be started....therefore how does one one look at traceflags (3607, 3608 and 3609)

You apply a trace flag when you start sql server--if you look at the service property, you can add /t startup option--see the options below....It's weird that it recreated tempdb and then gave a recovery error--did you try moving the files or something?  What happened to make the recovery mode kick in?
