What is SQL Server Service Manager?

An administrative tool in Microsoft SQL Server 7 that lets you start, stop, and pause the various components of a server running SQL Server. These components are implemented as Microsoft Windows NT or Windows 2000 services on a server running SQL Server. Called SQL Service Manager in version 6 of SQL Server, this tool manages several services.

  • Microsoft Search Service, a full-text search engine
  • MSDTC Service, which is used to manage distributed transactions
  • MSSQLServer Service, the database server for SQL Server
  • SQLServerAgent Service, which runs scheduled administrative tasks

SQL Server Service Manager runs as a taskbar application and displays an icon in the system tray. Double-click this icon to maximize the program. Clicking the Close button does not terminate the program - it returns it minimized to the system tray. To exit the program, right-click the icon in the system tray and choose Exit from the File menu.
