    Unanswered: SQL Server entries missing from Start Menu

    I have a 2003 Server which has two Named Instances of SQL Server 2000.

    I need to add a third Named Instance, but when I logged onto the Server this morning, I noticed that all of the
    'Microsoft SQL Server' Entries are missing from the START/PROGRAMS menu !! Enterprise Manager, BOL... everything!! The SQL Server Service Manager is running and both of my Instances are up and running (this is a production box). I can launch Enterprise Manager from MMC.EXE in WINDOWS\System32 folder... very weird!!!!

    In my Add/Remove Programs, I see MS SQL Server listed Twice.. one time for each of the two named Instances.

    Has anyone ever seen this before??? Do you think it's safe to run SQL Server Installation to Install a Third Instance on this box???

    “If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.
