Unable to start sql service when TCP/IP is enabled under SSCM - SS Network Configuration

Solution 1:

Sounds like there's something else already running on TCP port 1433. Stop the SQL Server. Then from a command prompt run

netstat -a -b

This will show you all the TCP ports which are in use and the name of the application which is using it. Find the application which is using TCP port 1433 and change that application to use a different port number.

Solution 2:

Figured it out. Right clicking the TCP/IP option there is an option to set 'Listeners' to all. Which is default, I changed this 'no', and it started so something must be up with my interfaces...
