I managed to screw up one of my sql servers the other day, so I decided to re-build it. I managed to re-install sql server, patch it up to the correct level and restore the master database, but now the sql service wont start at all
Any ideas as to why this has happened.
I am using sql server standard edition with win2000 server.
Ok I starting to work this out I think, maybe the old installation had the msdb database in a different location, so when I restored to master it made it look in the wrong place for .mdf and .ldf files
