I've got an error message on my SBS 2003:

Source: SQLServerAgent
Event ID: 208

SQL-Server Scheduled Job "epo_hip_installation" - Status: Failed
The job was invoked by Schedule 9 (epo_installation)

In serveral forums I read about "Server Manager" where you should reconfigure "Jobs" which belong to "SQL Server Agents". But my problem is that there is no Server Manager on this computer. There only is a "Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express" tool (it reports the underlying database as SQL Server "8.0.760"). And this tool does not offer any possibility to edit SQL Server Agents.

It's true, there once was a product installed named "epo" (from McAfee), obviously there are some ruins left after uninstallin this product. But how can I configure "SQL Server Agents" respectively their "jobs"?

Thanks for any hint and best regards,

If you want to use a GUI for this, you'll need to get the SQL 2000 tools installed, which will include Enterprise Manager and Query Analyzer.

Otherwise, you can run sqlcmd.exe from the command line and run sp_delete_job to remove the job. See Books Online for details.
