Another 1722 issue

MS Windows 2k
MS SQL Server 2k
localhost

I'm a developer and am having difficulty getting my fresh install of MS SQL Server running on the client's machine for a test environment.  

When I try to start the SQL Server I get the message:

An Error 1722 (the RPC server is unavailable) occurred while performing this service operation on MSSSQL Server Service.

I've got Network File & Printer share on.  What else can I check?

ok:

Make sure the RPC (Remote Procedure Call) service is started
They should be automatic.

check MSSQLserver service - login account- if it is not local system account .

Did you restart the box after the install ?

I'm trying to start the server in Enterprise Manager

Nothing is logged in the Event Viewer.

Win 2k sp5 for the server
MS SQL Server - out of the box

The customer's development machine I'm working on is not connected to the internet (they have a fully isolated intranet).

check MSSQLserver service - login account- if it is not local system account  - running localhost

?check MSSQLserver service - login account- if it is not local system account  - running localhost?

So if you go (start-> run-> %SystemRoot%\system32\services.msc /s)
you see in login account info for the MSSQLserver service- user name\password some local user account - that has what rights on the box? Is it member of local admin group?

Couldn't figure it out.  Didn't have time to fool with it.  Grabbed another machine and carried on from scratch.

Hmm- probably some problem with old box not directly related to sql server (fraimware, HDD, etc.)
It happens sometime

--Just Microsoft Pay-Per-Call or\and HW vendor can probaly help in such situation
