I am getting stumped on this one. I have a win2003 machine with MSDE SP3 installed on it from Sharepoint Team Services. I have poked and prodded SQLAgent to start, but I keep getting the message "SQLAgent is not allowed to run." I can get this error from the service control manager every time regardless of whether I try to run as LocalSystem, or as a domain user who is in the local admin group.
I attempted to run SQLAgent from the command line with the following command:
SQLAGENT /c /v /i SHAREPOINT
where sharepoint is the named instance of MSDE. I get this output from SQLAGENT:
2003-05-13 14:36:25 - ! [LOG] SQLAgent is not allowed to run
2003-05-13 14:36:26 - ?  SQLServerAgent terminated (normally)
I will take any advice up to and including "SQLAgent never works with MSDE". Thanks in advance.
