I'm having alot of trouble trying to restart SQL AGENT. It was working fine, and i'm not really familiar with system. However, i set the user in the services to the user 'sqladmin' and put in the password. The service says it started then stopped.... When i look in the even log this is what is see.....

SQLSERVERAGENT could not be started (reason: SQLSERVERAGENT must be able to connect to sql server as sysadmin, but ('Unknown)' is not a member of the SysAdmin role)

This is weird becuase it's not recognizing the user that i have entered, however his was working, and to my knowledge nothing has changed (According to the users).  I have tried everything that microsoft has recommended to no avail. Has anyone else seen this error ?

here is the error in the SQL Agent Log:

2006-07-07 11:28:12 - ! [298] SQLServer Error: 229, EXECUTE permission denied on object 'sp_sqlagent_has_server_access', database 'msdb', owner 'dbo'. [SQLSTATE 42000] (ConnIsLoginSysAdmin)

I think this is the problem with the user account / password of the MSSQLserverAgent starts with
run 'services.msc'  and find the service account

We ran into this with SQL Server 2005 and fixed the problem by making sure that the account running SQL Server (not the SQL Server Agent) had the Lock Pages in Memory right.
