    Hi All
    does anyone see this message in your cluster SQL server 2000? we got a lot of " svchost (836) The database engine 5.02.3790.3959 started." or "svchost (836) The database engine 5.02.3790.3959 stopped.
    could anyone tell me what happen or anything is wrong in our system?
    thanks in advance.

    These are messages when the database engine was stopped or started manually for maintianence purposes.
    But do you see this messages without sombode restarting them ?
    Do you also see any other message before the engine stopped in event viewer ?

    Remove AUTO_CLOSE on this database, this is not recommended on a production server.

    Good one SIR about AUTO_CLOSE was not aware that could cause problems .
    Hope that fixes this one.

    I thought it wouldn't but earlier we solved it by that way.
    SVCHost has importance in Windows servers, as its a critical service process, so the SQL Server service will communicate with it, the relevant PID of the Svchost.exe process can view from Task Manager.
    Relevant KBAs in this case:
    You may receive an error message when you try to install SQL Server on a
    computer that is running Windows Server 2003 Web Edition
