did you check under your computer services and see if it's already there? If not, then you probably are running the Express version, in which case you'll need to upgrade to the Enterprise version

Hi,

In the log directory look for SQLAGENT.OUT.

It is a text file.

Does it state why SQL Agent has stopped (or not really started?

you need to make sure the accounts running the service has local admin rights. Right mouse click the services and go to the properties to see what account is running them. if that doesn't fix the issue, there are a lot of different ideas located in this thread that have helped various users:

Hi,

I disagree. Neither SQL Agent of SQL Server need local admin rights, although that was an easy fix for versions 2000 & maybe 2005.

Its easier than when using Services applet to use SQL Configuration Manager to change accounts, as this gives the necessary rights as well as assigning the accounts.

this is version 2005...

It doesn't need full admin rights, yes you're right, but by giving full local admin rights is a good test to see if that resolves the issue. If so, then we can adjust the necessary privileges for the accounts running the services, which is why I included that thread because it describes, in detail, to do just that.

Thanks foe answering,

I have managed to run the service but i still cannot see the sql server manager.

The reason i need the sql manager is to create and scheduled a simple job!

Thanks

is the service running, meaning has it "started"?

if so you may need to drill down in one of those folders in your screen shot. i don't recall off hand where it resides.

Hi,

Expand Management.

If this is the full SSMS and not the express tools, then that's where I believe it is.
