We are trying to create a maintenance plan on a server 2008 R2 SQL Instance on a windows 7 x 64bit system.
However, we do not see the option of SQl Server Agent in the MGMT Studio to create a new maintenance plan.
I am unable to start the service for this item. When i try to start the service in the Configuration manager i get "The request failed or the service did not respond in timely fashion."
In the event log we get this "Description:
SQLServerAgent could not be started (reason: This installation of SQL Server Agent is disabled. The edition of SQL Server that installed this service does not support SQL Server Agent.)."
