So I am having issues starting my SQL services. Currently it is failing the start due to:
FileMgr::StartLogFiles: Operating system error 2(The system cannot find the file specified.) occurred while creating or opening file 'E:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10_50.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA\modellog.ldf'. Diagnose and correct the operating system error, and retry the operation.
The issue herein lies in the fact that this .ldf file is not on the E drive. There is no E: drive. The file is located on the F: drive.
I cannot find anywhere to tell SQL to change this. I can not drop/move/detach/etc the databases, because I cant even get the service to start, in order to connect.
This is happening on 3 different instances of SQL, after volume moves. Any ideas?
