'sa' is used for sql authentication. I assume this should have the highest privilege of all.

This issue frequently occurs if you do not have administrative permissions to stop, start, or restart services.


Verify that you have adequate permissions to start services on the server where sql is installed.

I really don't want this thread sink in vain like all others that I can find from Google.

I used the 'sa' account and SQL Server authentication to connection from my workstation to the server and I believe 'sa' has sufficient privilege to start, stop or restart the SQL Server service.

I also tried remote desktop the server directly, log on to SSMS by 'sa' again and the green arrow appears fine.

Its got nothing to do with being able to start/stop the services, its all to do with if your windows account has access to see the services state. go to start, run and type services.msc, change the machine name to the server your connecting to in ssms and see if you can see the sql services, i bet you wont be able too.

Hello Animal Magic

I did try services.msc and connect it to the server and all start, stop and restart options are there for MSSQLSERVER service.

And the windows account I used for log on to my local workstation is a domain admin FYI.

Could you please advise me a bit more? Thanks.

ok thats interesting. does anyone else have SSMS on their machine, and if so is the service state missing for them too?

one other thing to try, connect to the server in SSMS using the IP address and see if you get the same result as with the server name

This might be a stupid question but are you running the SQL 2008 client?

I have found that for some reason, a SQL 2005 Ent 64-bit cluster state cannot be seen by the 2008 client (even if the windows account is a local admin of said node and cluster).

Aggree with Animal that providing your a local admin of the server your connecting to (and assuming there are no client incompatibilities) the server state should be reported fine.

Hello guys

Till now, I almost give up. I've tried probably everything that I can, using IP address directly for connection, make sure that my domain admin account is also in the administrator group on the server etc. But still no luck.

So you are able to start and stop services from the same account that launched SSMS, when you use services.msc?

What version of the Tools are you using?
Is this an issue for all SQL Instances?
Is the domain admin account the same account you are using to start sql services by chance?
Are the sql services using a domain account?
Do you have the same issue when connecting to the instance using your domain account via SSMS, and not SA?

I use a SQL account with admin access when working from home. I can't start and stop the SQL Server services using this account. If I need to, I remote in to my desktop at work and use my network id to access the servers and stop and start services from there.

I have an idea on how to change that, but haven't had the time to test it. Perhaps early next week I will, as I am not sure if I will have time this weekend.
