Hi, is everyone ok??

Well, basically i over-look the operation of several servers for various companies. One of the servers however will not send me reports. Ive checked the problem out and it appears that the SQLAgent$SBSMonitoring service is not running. When i open services.msc and try to start it, it comes up with the formentioned error. (Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start) Ive checked this out further and i believe that the master.mdf file is corrupt. As, the server is a new setup carried out by a colleague, no backups were created.  Are they any suggestions for repairing the service?? We do not have any SQL repair software at hand.....

Cheers for the feedback, it is greatly appreciated!!

I have followed your link, and the person asking the question has a very similar problem. However, rebuildm.exe is not installed in sbs2003. Ive tried downloading the various .dll's for the program but to no avail...Any ideas??

Ok, ive done a little more research. Turns out sbs2003 doesnt use rebuildm.exe anymore, it can repair the database files using the setup provided on the cd's. However, i am unsure on how to go about doing this. I found a link to some possible useful information, (http://www.sqlnewsgroups.net/group/microsoft.public.sqlserver.server/topic22156.aspx) but im unsure what to do. Do i execute that command from the cmd prompt??What is 'instancename'??


Cheers,

Ok, I have researched this further. Im going to have to manually back up the active directory before reinstalling all of SBS 2003 on the corrupt machine. Thanks for your feedback.
