I have an issue with a Windows 2003 Server R2 Standard Edition SP2. Every time I restart the server, none of the SQL services start automatically. All of them are set to 'Automatic' within Services. If I attempt to manually start one of them it reports a logon failure. The SQL Service is attempting to login as DOMAIN\Administrator, the same account as what the server is logged in as. If I then re-enter the password and click ‘Apply’, I can then start all the SQL services afterwards. Why do I need to re-enter this password every time? Any ideas?
