I've stopped SqlServerAgent from one computer different from one where SQL Server run, and when I've tried to restart the service I've got an error:
[LOG] Exception 5 caught at line 173 of file ..\src\refreshr.c. SQLServerAgent initiating self-termination;
I've done this operation many times, and I've never had this problem.
I've the italian version of SQL Server 2000.
Someone could help me?
