My SQL server service is failing to start with error.
The SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER) service terminated with service-specific error 17051 (0x429B).
Looking in the SQL log it appears to be because I have finished my evaluation period. We have had a delay in getting our license.
My question is if I have been using an evaluation version of SQL 2008 how do I apply the license when I cannot even open any of the mangement tools. Can I even license an Eval version.
