I am unable to start MSSQL 2005 after a system reboot. When I manually try to start the service through the SQL Server configuration Manager it fails with "The request failed or the service did no respond in a timely fashion".
I looked in c:\program files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\LOG but it is not writing anything to the errorlog file.
What should I do next? What is the best way to debug why it is not starting?
