Error 1053 SQL server – How we solve it

by | Jan 22, 2021

Error 1053 SQL server occurs when attempting to pause or stop the SQL Server service in the Windows Services Console.

Here at Bobcares, we have seen several such SQL related issues as part of our Server Management Services for web hosts and online service providers.

Today we’ll take a look at the cause for this error and how to fix it.

 

What causes error 1053 SQL server to occur

The Microsoft Windows Service Control Manager controls the start, stop, and pause state of all installed Windows services. If the system times out before the stop or pause has completed then this error occurs.

By default, the Service Control Manager waits for 30 seconds until a service responds. However, certain configurations, technical restrictions, or performance issues may delay the service to respond and may take longer than 30 seconds.

By editing or creating the ServicesPipeTimeout DWORD value, the Service Control Manager timeout period can be overridden, thereby giving the service more time to start up and report ready to the Service.

For instance, the error appears as below.

How we fix error 1053 SQL server

Here are a couple of steps that our Support Engineers provide to our customers to resolve this error.

1. Process monitor usage

  • Run process monitor and then run SQL service from the command line (copy path and syntax from services properties)
    Find the file location in process monitor running as the service attempted to run
    C:\WINDOWS\WinSxS\x86_Microsoft.VC80.CRT_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50727.4053_x-ww_e69679\MSVCP80.dll
  • Open that directory and check whether file size and date for MSVCP80.dll is different than the one in SQL setup and install directory. Replace it.

2. Ending the process that is causing the error is the best solution to get rid of this error. Here are the steps to end the process.

  • Initially, open the Windows Task Manager and go to the Processes tab
  • Then select sqlservr.exe and click End Process
  • When prompted to confirm that you wish to end the process, click End process

3. Restarting the computer is the easiest way to fix this error. After restarting attempt to stop the service again to test

4. The SQLServerAgent service startup account may not have the correct folder permissions that contain SQLAgent.out files.
In such cases, make sure that the SQLServerAgent service account has full control permissions to the folder in which the SQLAgent.out, SQLAgent.1, SQLAgent.2, and other SQL Server files are located. These files are typically stored in the LOG folder, which is in the SQL Server installation path.

5. Few executable .dll files may be corrupted or damaged.

In this case, try to start SQL Server Agent from the command prompt by running the following command:

For Default Instance

sqlagent -c -v

For Named Instance

sqlagent -i[Instance Name] -c -v

If you receive the following error message

execution can’t continue as the language resource file sqlagent.rll could not be loaded

Then replace the SQLAgent.dll and SQLAgent.rll files with different copies of these files (SQLAgent.dll and SQLAgent.rll).
