SQL Server Error 1069 Service does not start due to logon failure

SQL Server Agent will not start on SBS2003 Premium. Error 1069: The service does not start successfully because of a log on failure. I did the research and found MS KB28254 This article suggests going into services and putting in the correct password into the SQLAgent.

I tried this. I put in the Administrator password for logging onto the server itself and it makes no difference, the agent will not start.

The other two SQL Services start and run fine.

What am I doing wrong?

    Accepted Solution

    If you specify local system account, it doesn't need a password.

    If you specify another account, e.g. Administrator, you must make sure the administrator password has not expired and the account isn't locked out.

    twoboats, so how can I give you the points you earned? Do you want them? If you do, I will try to fix it. If you don't care that is fine too. I just don't want to short you.
