SQLServer won't start?

    Not sure what happened, but hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

    sqlserver won't start, the event log has this error

  • Have you checked the SQL log?  That will likely tell you what is wrong.

    Now, if memory serves, the MSVCP100.dll is the Microsoft Visual C redistributable, so if that got updated or corrupted, you may need to do a repair install on either SQL Server or on the redistributable packate.

    But step 1 - check the SQL Logs to see why SQL failed to start.

  • Thanks for getting back...

    The only way I know to get to the logs is via SSMS  connecting to the DB which it won't do.

    Is there another way?

     

  • The logs are stored on disk along with the SQL instance in a folder called "Logs".  You will be looking for the file "ERRORLOG" (no file extension) and you can open that up in notepad (or equivalent... I recommend notepad++, but it is whatever you prefer) and it should provide you with some useful information.

  • Just a note: If you need to work regularly with log files, consider looking at the Microsoft's log parser toolkit. This is a stand-alone EXE with a small footprint. Uninstall by simply deleting the EXE. You can use regular SQL-style SELECT FROM query syntax, including WHERE, JOIN and even GROUP BY clauses. Output can be redirected to CSV files (among others). It is blazingly fast, and has helped me many times. Avoid using it against a "live" log file - always work with a copy

    Did you do any recent update? Cans you share your SQL server configuration?
