performance logs and alerts service.
For some reason it not starting saing (in the event log)logon failure.
I typed my password and 1000 times checked CAPS don’t understand what is wrong
can someone help?
thank you
Check the startup account of this service (Right click on the service and click on the tab Log On). This should be an account that is having access to the SQL Server, preferably under the local administrators group on the server.
True and also refer to this MSDN…ry/en-us/sqlntsv/htm/ns_adminperform_74fp.asp link for alternatives. Satya SKJ
