Funny SQL Server Error Messages


Thanks to all who contributed interesting error messages you've seen over the years. Here's some great error messages that were contributed by Sergei Yakovlev.

I've had this error message on my screen for a long time now.  I saw

this one when I was debugging a SQL Server Agent issue. I'm sorry for the poor

quality of the image now.  It's a really old screenshot and I don't have

the original.

In case you can't read it, the error message states:

The SQLServerAgent service depends on the MSSQLServer service, which has

failed due to the following error.

The operation completed successfully.
