Can't start the SQLAGENT

Hi Guru,

I'm tired of trouleshoot one of my sql box that the sqlagent can't
started. Here is the message:
SQLServerAgent could not be started (reason: Unable to connect to
server '(local)'; SQLServerAgent cannot start)
SQLSERVER runs on LocalSystem account with started up type
automatic and successful
Connect to SQL Analyzer: LocalHost, . (period), (local) and blank
all successful
Registry key and MDAC are good safe
BUILTIN\Administrators is present and SYSADMIN rights
From AD, domain accounts passwords are in synch.
Win2000, SQL2000 SP3a and build 800.00.760
Client and network utility used both name pipe and TCP

From enterprise manager on the server itself, I am able to register the

server by supplying the server name. However, when I tried to register
with the (local), I was never able to do so.

I also tried to restart the SQL agent with localsystem, domain and
local admin accounts none of them can start the service. These accounts
are local admin to the box and have complete sysdmin rights to sql
server. From query analyzer, these accounts can connect to server with
blank, LocalHost, (local), and period. So, this tells me that the
server does not experience of resolving (local) connection.

I tried to log on to the server with both local and domain
accounts to start agent but nothing is good for me. I tried to change
startup account from enterprise manager to make sure security is in
synch but still the same.

However, the last thing that I've not done is reboot the OS.

Please help,
