We use SQL Server 2005 and sometimes our Analysis Services won't start. A simple reboot solves the problem, however, I'm trying to find a solution that does not rely on that.
If I try to start it from the "SQL Server Configuration Manager", I get a timeout error. When starting from windows' services manager, it states that the service was "started and then interrupted".
The windows application log has three entries:
1 - The flight recorder was started.
2 - The service cannot be started: The following system error occurred: . The following system error occurred: .
3 - Service stopped.
I have also tried to start "Analysis Services" with every single logon option. The same error occurs.
