error: The request failed or the service did not respond in a timely fashion

timely fashion error


1.Recently, An unexpected shutdown of my Database server has resulted in crashing of the     SQL Server Instance and I was unable to restart SQL Server.

2. SQL Server master database becomes corrupt, such as from its disks losing power                   while SQL Server was running.


I was unable to connect to SQL Server Instance and when I checked the SQL Server error logs, I could see the following entries

“Cannot recover the master database. SQL Server is unable to run. Restore master from a full backup, repair it, or rebuild it. “

Now what do I do? I don’t have backups of SQL Server System databases!

Since I don’t have the system databases backups, the only option left for me was to rebuild the system databases.


  1. Rebuild master database when master database file corrupted but backup is not available
