SQL server 2012 services are not starting automatically with Windows 2012 boot

We have a cluster of SQL servers (Windows 2012) on one node the SQL services will not start at boot time. Any ideas? This is a virtualized environment on VMware ESXi 5.5 platform.



Does it start manually after boot eg after 19 mins

If so have you tried a delayed start?

Also this is a sign of poor performance if so increase vCPUs Memory

Also what is data store hosted on?

It does not start only if you manually start the service (and it actually does sometime work if you re-enter the password - but only for a couple of reboots...weird) I have not tried delayed start, we would need this to be automatic but I will give it a shot. We have increased memory and it was working fine (12 GB - should be plenty) Data Store is on a Netapp SAN.



Auto Start with delay....

Eg starts the OS waits and then starts SQL.

Use Jumbo Frames

Increase vCPU



I don't have the answer (far more likely Andrew will ultimately root out the cause), but just tossing out a thought -- You mention that this is a cluster, with one node. That says to me that the service should be managed/controlled through the Failover Cluster Manager, not through services like any other SQL server might be managed. Just confirming... you aren't starting/stopping the SQL server thru the services applet are you?



It's a 4 node cluster - not through the services but through the SQL config manager...
