    Unanswered: Starting sql server agent sql 2005

    I am running windows 2003 and sql server 2005. i am following the directions in books online:

    On the Start menu, point to All Programs, point to Microsoft SQL Server 2005, point to Configuration Tools, and then click SQL Server Configuration Manager.

    In SQL Server Configuration Manager, expand Services, and then click SQL Agent.

    In the results pane, right-click any instance, and then click Start.

    A green arrow on the icon next to the SQL Server Agent and on the toolbar indicates that SQL Server Agent started successfully.

    Click OK.

    the problem is i have nothing in Services. there is nothing to expand.
    is it installed wrong?? or is there another step before this that i have to do??

    I can't expand Services, but when I click on it I see the different services that are installed.

    What edition of SQL 2005 are you running?

    Also, double check to be sure that you are pointed at the right host.



    Edit: changed version to edition. Duh.
