CMS Will not start. MS SQL not starting. Error: 9003, Severity: 20, S

Sometime in the last two weeks, the master MS SQL database has been corrupted. As a result the Central Management Server will not start and we can not log into our online Crystal Reports viewer. We are running and what ever version of MS SQL that installed with Business Object and Crystal Reports.

Is there anyway to recover this master database (no, we do not have a backup). Can it be reinitialized and then what steps do I need to go through to get back at our reports?

    if you dont have a backup its getting worse. The CMS DB and FileStore Backups need to be in synch. You can re- initialize the DB...but all your Objects will be lost.

    If the CMS doesnt start, you even cant backup your repots, universes etc. using the local client tools.
