SQLServer Agent does not automatically start.
Posted on 2011-10-12
I am using SQL server 2008 and it is hosted on a XP Pro SP3 machine.
The XP host is a Vmware "pc'.
The Sql Server Agent never starts automatically upon logon, i have set it start automatically but always have to manually do it. even though it is set to auto. However when i right click on it and click "start" it starts fine. So the password is ok.
In the Event Log it says that "The Sql Server agent could not start for the reason (unable to connect to the server). Event ID 103
