SQL Server services problem (doesn´t start)


I´m facing an error when I try to start the SQL Server database services in Windows Server 2008, for this reason, we can´t start our SAP system.

I done a reboot to the server but even so two MS SQL Server services doesn´t start!

When I try to start both services manually, it show me the following errors:

Windows could not start the SQL Server Agent (MSSQLSERVER) service on Local Computer.

Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start.

Windows could not start the SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER) on Local Computer. For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code 1814.

I checked the Event Viewer (System) and the only thing that I see is the following details...

- For the SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER) service:

The SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER) service terminated with service-specific error 1814 (0x716).

For the SQL Server Agent (MSSQLSERVER) service:

The SQL Server Agent (MSSQLSERVER) service depends on the SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER) service which failed to start because of the following error:

The service has returned a service-specific error code.

Any tips?

Can you help me please?

Kind regards,

Hum... exactly! As I suspected, as I said in my previous message please check the following link:

sql server will not start - Database 'model' cannot be opened. It is in the middle of a restore.

Follow the solution refered in that microsoft forum.
