I'm new to Service Broker. Our existing Service Broker suddenly stops working and I can't figure out why.

When I try to enable Service Broker (which is already enabled) I get this in SQL error log:

An error occurred in the service broker manager
Error: 3602, State: 25.

Also tried creating new message queues. I am able to see the created queues under sys.service_queues and sys.objects but not in sys.dm_broker_queue_monitors.

Hi Sir, Does this mean I wont be able to fix this on my end? Thanks! – Eman Masalunga May 17 '13 at 6:54
@Eman: it means you have a problem that's possibly a bug and you should contact MS Support. It also means you can't get a better answer here. Remus is our most authoritative figure for Service Broker. – Marian May 17 '13 at 16:00

Have a look at ssbdiagnose Utility (Service Broker) ( – Kin Aug 18 '13 at 15:44

I've recently encountered this error again today after server restart and I was able to fix it.

What I did was open/modify the message queue and execute the ALTER QUEUE command again and voila, the queue re appears on the sys.dm_broker_queue_monitors and messages are being processed again. Now what I need to know is why do I need to do this in order to get it functioning again. :)
