    Cannot Start MSSQL Error Code 3 (Corrupt MASTER.MDF)

    Afternoon All MSSQL Experts

    We run a MRP package called PREDCOM that uses MSSQL as a db. Since of this morning we cannot start the db service. The error message indicates that the master.mdf file is corrupt. Can anybody assist us to restore the database without losing the table definitions, stored procedures and data.

    Error says master db corrupted, it shouldn't affect mrp db. Do you have good backup of master db and mrp db? Is there any disk related error in windows event logs? If so, fix disk issue and reboot machine. Otherwise you can try restore master db from backup. If still gives you erro, try restore mrp db to another sql server.

    Restore With Transact-SQL
    Step 1
    Click “New Query” in the Management Studio’s main toolbar. This opens a large text area on the right side of the screen.
    Step 2
    Click in the text area and type a Create Database statement using the following Transact-SQL code as a guide:
    CREATE DATABASE MyDatabase ON (FILENAME = 'c:\data files\my_data.mdf'), (FILENAME = ' c:\data files\my_data.ldf') FOR ATTACH;
    Step 3
    Click the “Execute” button in the Transact-SQL toolbar, located just under the Management Studio’s main toolbar. The Execute button symbol is a right-pointing triangle. SQL Server Management Studio restores the database.
