Hey Everyone,

Here is my issue. I installed MS SQL Serve 2005 Ent and then Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 and I started getting these errors.

I went to event ID and found there was nothing visible I could check. I tried to view any "old jobs" but there were none when I loaded the agent. But then again, Im not even sure I did that right.

SQL Newbie here. Any help would be appreciated.
