I have installed sharepoint services on windows server 2003, using wmsde as db server.
I have now upgraded wmsde to sql server 2000 sp3a, problem is SQL Agent wont start, error log shows 'SQLAgent is not allowed to run'. this happens using local system or domain account as service log on. I need to be able to schedule backups so this is a real pain.

Any ideas??

Ok, you said "sql server 2000 sp3a"  do you mean you acually upgraded MSDE to SQL Server, or you upgrades MSDE with SP3a?

Sorry, I havent described this very well. Yes it was originally MSDE which was installed when Sharepoint services were installed.

Once sharepoint was up and running on MSDE, I upgraded MSDE to an instance of SQL  Server 2000 SP2, and then applied SP3 to that.
