Do not know SQL at all so assume that part of my problem is ignorance on the topic that is making me misinterpret documentation. The only person with SQL background is on vacation. HELP! I need to restore the master db from a backup before I can put production databases back online for users.
1. I know I need to start SQL in single-user-mode, but when I run the DOS command it returns the info I've copied and pasted below, BUT it never goes back to the DOS prompt as if it wasn't quite finished.
2. After 30 minutes of no activity, I give up on waiting for the DOS prompt and open Enterprise Manager but it returns this error: A connection could not be established to SSD-SQL. Reason: Login failed for user MY-DOMAIN\Administrator. Reason: Server is in single user mode. Only one administrator can connect at this time. Please verify SQL Server is running and check your SQL Server registration properties by right-clicking the node and try again.
3. This is a new install of SQL to replace failed hardware. All production databases were detached and moved to the new server before installing SQL. The master was backed up to a drive on the new server. Production databases have been reattached successfully. All we need is to restore the backedup master.
4. Once I get past starting SQL in single-user mode and can access it with Enterprise Manager, I will also need a step-by-step explanation of how to do the restore.
5. High points due to urgency. SQL has been down for 3 days!
