Error 1814 when starting SQL Server 2008 R2

Hi,

I am trying to start SQL Server 2008 R2 services following on from a scheduled restart and am receiving the following error message:

'Windows could not start the SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER) on Local Computer. For more information review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft server, contact the service vendor, and refer to the service-specific error code 1814'

System Event Logs:

'The SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER) service terminated with service-specific error The specified resource name cannot be found in the image file..']

Initial research seems to point to disk space issues. I can confirm that all partitions have no space concerns.

Thanks.

If space is OK, perhaps the antivirus locking your mdf/ldf

Looks like some database (probably tempdb) cannot be created. Ensure that SA (SQL authentication) user or your domain user (Windows Authentication) has modify permissions on a folder where databases are stored or SQL installed.

Message states that there might be non-sufficient disk space but it's also for not enough permission for user.

So, check if Windows Authentication on your or DOmain Admin account would help. And check if those accounts have modify permission in NTFS properties of that folder with DBs.

Regards,
Krzysztof

Thanks guys.

- I have disabled our Anti Virus and still have the same problem.
- Disk space is not an issue
- The relevant Windows users have Full Control to the folder where the SQL databases exist. (Also the tempdb directory).

Can you try to start service again and look into Event Log, maybe there will be also something more about that than this one entry?

Following links should be helpful:-
http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sqlsetupandupgrade/thread/d5af60d4-84e3-4b03-a8cc-ec5ddbdb8c74

Besides the errorId is generally associated with the failure of creation of tempdb database. Check for the space in the disk which holds tempdb files and also check whether the associated disk is present there or not. May be some reference problem.

So, as I posted, looks like permissions problem :) SQL cannot create tempdb database
Check permissions to that folder again :)

Hi Krzysztof,

The NTFS permissions on the 'tempdb' directory are set as FULL CONTROL for the Administrators group.

Thanks.

I would like to repeat again: how much space is left for tempdb drive? Is it sufficient? Please make more room.

And is it a separate drive? Are there any other database residing on the same drive?

There are various databases on the E drive.
