I have a dell R710 server (Windows server 2008 Standard with MS SQL Server 2008) that had a hard drive fail.
I received a replacement hard drive and attempted to let the raid 0 array rebuild itself, but it kep failing.
I replaced both raid HDD's and restored from a Simplified Disaster Recovery backup from Backup Exec.
The server is back up and running (partially).
I am unable to get the MSSQLSERVER instance running because I get error messages about the master database being corrupt.
event id: 3417
Cannot recover the master database. SQL Server is unable to run. Restore master from a full backup, repair it, or rebuild it. For more information about how to rebuild the master database, see SQL Server Books Online.
I have tried to rebuild the database with (etup /ACTION=REBUILDDATABASE /QUIET /INSTANCENAME=<instance name> /SQLSYSADMINACCOUNTS=<accounts>) , but it fails.
