SQL Server 2012
SQL ServerAgent is currently Stopped. I want it to be running, so I right click and select start and get the dialogue box error:
"The request failed or the service did not respond in a timely fashion. Consult the event log or other applicable error logs for details."
I go to Windows Event Logs and find this:
"The log scan number (18:78:1) passed to log scan in database 'model' is not valid. This error may indicate data corruption or that the log file (.ldf) does not match the data file (.mdf). If this error occurred during replication, re-create the publication. Otherwise, restore from backup if the problem results in a failure during startup."
I googled the error and found advice to run DBCC CHECKDB, which I did and got
"...CHECKDB found 0 allocation errors and 0 consistency errors in database 'model'.
DBCC execution completed. If DBCC printed error messages, contact your system administrator.".
There were no errors.
Can someone please help me further troubleshoot the issue? Goal is to start SQL Server Agent. I'm logged in with the same login used to install SQL Server, also the default logon for SQL Server Agent.
