Hello Maters,

I have one SQL Server 2000 in my database environment, Our wintel team gimme a message that their filesystem backup failed due to some sql error. The error looks like below:

"Sqllib error: OLEDB Error encountered calling IDBInitialize::Initialize. hr = 0x80004005. SQLSTATE: 08001, Native Error: 17, Error state: 1, Severity: 16"

After investigating I found if your TCP-IP is not enabled you can face this error. I checked and found my TCP-IP is enabled. I am not sure whats this error is as I did not work with SQL Server 2000 before. Can you please help me to short it out ?

One more shocking thing I seen that I did not seen SQL Services except agent services !!! see attachment. How SQL Server is running if SQL Services are not there....?

If I recall correctly the SQL Engine service of SQL 2000 is named "MS SQL Server". When you have the services sorted on name (default) the Engine service is -not- listed next to the Agent service.

How does your WinTel group wants to create their backups? Are there additional related error messages in the SQL log or in the Windows Eventlog?
Because the datafiles are locked when a database is online, you need to have a backup application that handles these situation. It's better to create backups of the databases by using a SQL backup (native or third party).

Thanks Hanshi for the information..!

I did not knew that in 2000, SQL Services named as "MSSQL...", I caught it and its working fine. Morover, I checked the event logs and found something wrong going on with VSS Writer. Is it part of SQL Server 2000 ? If yes how can I troubleshoot VSS Writer in SQL Server 2000 ?
