I was attempting to move the tempdb to a different drive using sql 2005.

Here are the steps i took:
Added: -T3608 to the startup parameters
stopped and started sql service

detached the tempdb

attempted to reattach and i got the error 'tempdb already exist'

So, i tired to detach again and it said 'tempdb' does not exist

I have tried using the alters:
use master
go
Alter database tempdb modify file (name = tempdev, filename = 'E:\Sqldata\tempdb.mdf')
go
Alter database tempdb modify file (name = templog, filename = 'E:\Sqldata\templog.ldf')
go

and i got the correct message - but again when i stopped and started sql service - tempdb was still not there.

Please help

I just tried to rebuild my master and i get the following error:

The installer has encountered an unexpected error.  The error code is 2711.  The specified Feature name (‘sql_engine’) not found in Feature table

any suggestions?

did you remove the -T3608 from the startup parameters?

SQL Server does not recover any database except the master database with this flag.

if you started the sql server than you just needed to refresh view of your windows explorer...
