Hello,
one of our customers has a Windows 2003 Enterprise 64bit cluster with an instance of MSSQL server 2005 standard sp2 that is no more reachable by the clients and via management studio we get a timeout.
Could we try to upgrade to sp4?
Which logs we have to look for to have more information on the issue?
In event viewer we see these errors (in italian):

Tipo evento:      Errore
Origine evento:      SQLSERVERAGENT
Categoria evento:      Service Control

Hello Marten thanks,
yes the sql server service is started, the sql server agent service does not start and gives the error 103.
The error log doesn't tell me anything but I never work with sql... so I attached it.
The aplication log shows only the two errors I posted even when I restart it.
regards
Andrea

Make sure you use SSCM (SQL Server Configuration Manager) when changing the account,

Hello everyone,
the problem was caused by a faulty memory bank in the server sqla, the failure probably happened when they were moving the sql service between cluster members.
The issue has been fixed reinstalling from scratch the servers.

Thank you for all the answers.

It's not a solution, the problem was caused by a hardware failure.
After having changed the faulty memory bank we reinstalled.
