I noticed in task manager that a lot of memory is being used up by sqlsvr.exe *32 which seems to be running twice.

So I have stopped one of these processes and now I cannot access http://companyweb - i get an error when I try to access it - "Cannot connect to the configuration database"

How do I manually start the companyweb instance without re booting the server?

Hi,

just run "services.msc" and look for the service "Microsoft SQL Server..." and start the service.

Perhaps you might need to restart the Windows SharePoint Timer Service and perhaps have to run the command "IISRESET".

HTH,
