SQL Server FAQ - Verifying SQL Server Running Status

(Continued from previous topic...)

How do you know if SQL Server is running on your local system?

After installing SQL Server 2006 Express Edition, it will be running on your local system quietly as a background process.

If you want to see this process is running, run Windows Task Manager. You should see a process called sqlservr.exe running in the process list:

sqlservr.exe      00      1,316 K

If you select sqlservr.exe and click the "End Process" button, SQL Server will be stopped.

If you can not find sqlservr.exe in the process list, you know that your SQL Server is running.
