I have a SQL server that has a corrupt MASTER.LDF file, which prevents SQL services from starting at all.
Is there any way to start SQL services with just MASTER.MDF? So far I have tried renaming MASTER.LDF to MASTER.LDF.OLD and SQL reports that the file is missing and still does not start (although I do not get a corrupt message).
If I cannot start MASTER.MDF without the log file, is there a way to rebuild the log file?
Help is appreciated. Thanks!
