This just started happening with the time change. When i try to look at the properties of my scheduled jobs, i get the error:

Error 14258: Cannot perform this operation while SQLServerAgent is starting. Try again later

I've tried rebooting the server to no avail, please help.

Hi,

Is there anything in your SQLAGent.out files that can give you a clue? Have you changed the startup account lately (one of those things that could have been changed a long time ago but the change did not come in effect until the service was restared).

Try to start the agent from the command line and pipe the result (and then check the agenterror.out for clues):

sqlagent.exe -c -v >C:\agenterror.out

You can also try the steps in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322140 although the article specifies another error.

HTH!

/Elisabeth

Thanks Elisabeth. What we ended up doing was rebooting our sql farm of about 30 sql servers, this must have put the time back in synch and jobs started running normally again. Weird.

I started getting this error (Error 14258: Cannot perform this operation while SQLServerAgent is starting. try again later) this morning, afterrebooting to finish installing an external drive. I have checked, and it is already in thread mode, with lightweight pooling set to 0. I ran a reconfigure in Query analyzer just to be sure, and that confirmed that lightweight pooling was already off - it returned "lightweight pooling changed from 0 to 0." Therer have been no account changes in 3 years on this server.

This is the MOM database server, and I need the extra space to back up some logs so I can do anything to keep the stupid server from running out of space - a chronic problem with this pig (MOM). Is there *any* reason installing an external drive should hose SQL?
