A few months back I installed SQL Server 2008R2. At the time of installation I used
2.NT Authority\NetworkService as the SQL Agent user name, and the same user name for all other components also.
At that time everything worked. Now when I start the Agent I am getting this below error.
Windows could not start the SQL Server Agent (MSSQLSERVER) service on Local Computer. Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
I followed this link (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322140). The steps are not clear to me but I tried a few. When I run by using
cmd as admin I get this error:
The program can't start because sqlncli10.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.
Please can anyone help me with easy steps?
