I'm trying to schedule several DTS packages by right-clicking over DTS and selecting Schedule Package - when I do so I get the following warning:  The SQLServerAgent on target server LOCAL is stopped.  Make sure it is running during the scheduled execution of this package.  How do I make sure that the SQLServerAgent is started and running - including if the machine is restarte?

In Control Panel -Administrative Tools - SQLServerAgent

Set its startup to Automatic.

You can check and see if it is tarted there as well.

Or look in Enterprise Manager to see if the green arrow next to SQL Server Agent under Management in the SQL Server tree is bright green.

And if I don't see SQLServerAgent - in under Administrative Tools?

I see it under Services (under Administrative Tools) but when I try to start it - it says:

Could not start the SQLSERVERAGENT service on Local Computer.
The service did not return an error.  This could be an Internal windows error or an internal service error.
If the problem persists, contact your system administrator.

In Enterprise Manager - under Management
Right click SQL Server Agent and Choose display error log. See if there is anything there that tells you why it did not start

If that does not tell you anything. Go to a command prompt and navigate to the folder where SQLagent.exe is.
This is usually \program files\microsoft SQL Server\mssql\binn
You may have to seach the computer for the file.

Run this command:

sqlagent -c -v

This may tell you why it did not start.
