SQL Connectivity problems RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     

    I am getting an event 14420:

     

    "...Server startup is pending as server is unable to connect to SQL Server.

    Retries left: 588.
    Cause: WMI is unable to query the back-end database for server configuration. Server cannot start until database becomes available.
    Resolution:
    Ensure that the back-end SQL server is available and there are no connectivity issues."

     

    The SQL server is running just fine.  Any suggestions are most appreciated.

     

    Thanks,

    Stephen

  • Was able to get past the WMI error buy starting these services and setting them to automatic on the SQL server:
     
    SQL Server Agent (EXLAB)
     
    SQL Server Browser
     
    WMI Performance Adapter
