Microsoft SQL server is a a service that helps run database related applications to run. Recently we received a mail from one of our reader shaik who wants to know how can he run SQL Server through run prompt or command prompt.
Here is the mail from him
I would like to open SQL SERVER 2005 through RUN prompt
So, he is actually interested in the commands to run or stop SQL Server 2005 directly with some commands which can be run through run prompt.
Let’s see how can we start, stop SQL Server 2005 through run prompts with some simple commands
SQL Server 2005 is actually a service running behind, so you can start and stop the instance of SQL Server by starting or stopping the service.
1. Open Start Menu >> Run,
2. Run the following command to run or stop the SQL Server
2.1 To Start SQL Server 2005 – run the following command at run prompt
net start mssqlservaer
2.2 To Stop SQL Server 2005 – run the following command at run prompt
net stop mssqlserver
3. That’s it
Note: You can also run these commands through command prompt or store both of these commands in batch file in sequence of stop and start command to restart running SQL Server.
