Is there way to tell when was sql server stopped? I know i can look in the sql server logs but that only tells me when sql server was started.

thanks

Look on the server's application log in event viewer.

xp_readerrorlog will display the last error log. Then you can feed it integer parameters to see the previous logs.

exec master.dbo.xp_readerrorlog 1

That will show the last log generated before the current one, your stop request should be the final row.

Theoretically the last record should show the request to stop.

This will also work:

Copy the following VB Script code to Notepad, save for example as C:\CheckSQLStop.vbs and run either by itself on the server or specifying the machine name if you have admin rights (that you don't have as you say) or running in Query Analyzer which will execute as SQL Server startup account. This will work on Windows XP and Windows 2003

xp_cmdshell "cscript C:\CheckSQLStop.vbs"

' Code for CheckSQLStop.vbs

' This is modified example from Scriptomatic Tool - generated code

On Error Resume Next
strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_NTLogEvent where " _
& "Logfile = 'Application' and eventcode = '17147'",,48)
For Each objItem in colItems
Wscript.Echo "Category: " & objItem.Category
Wscript.Echo "CategoryString: " & objItem.CategoryString
Wscript.Echo "ComputerName: " & objItem.ComputerName
Wscript.Echo "Data: " & objItem.Data
Wscript.Echo "EventCode: " & objItem.EventCode
Wscript.Echo "EventIdentifier: " & objItem.EventIdentifier
Wscript.Echo "EventType: " & objItem.EventType
Wscript.Echo "InsertionStrings: " & objItem.InsertionStrings
Wscript.Echo "Logfile: " & objItem.Logfile
Wscript.Echo "Message: " & objItem.Message
Wscript.Echo "RecordNumber: " & objItem.RecordNumber
Wscript.Echo "SourceName: " & objItem.SourceName
Wscript.Echo "TimeGenerated: " & objItem.TimeGenerated
Wscript.Echo "TimeWritten: " & objItem.TimeWritten
Wscript.Echo "Type: " & objItem.Type
Wscript.Echo "User: " & objItem.User
Next
