SQL Server Agent Not Starting – Help!!Hello… I need some help! When I attempt to start my SQL Agent I get this error:
"An Error 5 – (Access is denied) occured while performing this service operation" What’s wrong? I do not have the sa password and am wondering how to get this agent started so I can do backups. Thank you for your help!!
You need to be a SA to administer the SQL Server. In this particular case, if you are a local admin of the SQL Server box, you may be able to go to Services and manually start the SQL Server Agent. —————————–
