We run SQL on a Win2K server. The database for an OOB product began to be flagged as 'suspect' a few days ago. The first couple of times we were able to stop/start MSSQL and the database would come back up. Today it wouldn't. In an attempt to repair the problem, I detatched the db. When I attempt to re-attach, I was getting the following message 

error 5101: Device activation error. The physical file name 'C:\%path to db%\db_log.LDF ' may be incorrect. Then I get db Attach failed.

I resolved this by creating a new DB of the same name, stopping SQL and replacing the MDF with the corrupt file. I'm now back to 'suspect' on the DB in Enterprise Manager.

When I run DBCC CHECKDB ('dbname', REPAIR_REBUILD) I get the response below:

Server: Msg 945, Level 14, State 2, Line 1
Database 'dbname' cannot be opened due to inaccessible files or insufficient memory or disk space.  See the SQL Server errorlog for details.

Any ideas?
