MSSQL$Sharepoint service is Stopped -- AGAIN !?
Posted on 2009-07-02
A little over a month ago, my SBS 2003 server was unable to start the Sharepoint services. Based on the responses from this forum, I followed the recommendation to de-install and re-install Sharepoint services, apply all the patches, etc. It was working fine from May 31 until yesterday. Suddenly, at 8:04 am, the MSSQL$Sharepoint service stopped and everytime I try to start it, it generates the same database error as it was a month ago. I get the floowing error every 5 seconds (again). Why would this error suddenly return ? We're not really using any Sharepoint services features, so would I be safe just deinstalling Sharepoint Services and not reinstalling ?
