I have a SQL Server MAchine with 3 instances.

I can't get the SQL Server Agent Service to Start.

The account was temporarily set to use a Domain Account but that password expired. I enter the current password but it fails.

I tried using the NETWORK Server Account the the Local System Accounts but regardless of the account that I use the server fails to start.

I get a message that the request failed or the service did not respond in a timely fashion. Consult the event log or other applicable error logs for details.

There are no entries in the SQL Log file.

In the Windows System Even Log there the following error for each attempt regardless on the Account that I use.

The SQL Server Agent (MSSQLSERVER) service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not start due to a logon failure.

Any ideas?

It is not critical because this is a Development Server and the particular instance is barely used so if I have to reinstall SQL Server I will do so but I was hoping to find the source of the problem and correct it.

Any ideas?

Sound like another SqlServer Ad/Security "sticky-cache" problem. Rebooting usually fixes this for me.

When you change the accounts, are you making sure to do it through Configuration Manager?

Thanks,

Yes, I'm using the configuration Manager to change the Services.

I recall you mentioning in a thread posted months about Database Mail some of the problems associated with not going through the Configuration Manager.

Thanks.

I have not bounced the Server.

I hope a lot going on and that instance is only used for an old archived version of a Development Database.

I figured mine out. Someone had gone into the local security policies and removed the network service from the log on as a service assignment. Once I added it back in and then gave it rights to the instance folders everything worked.
