SQL Server – read only database status


This post describes how to return the database read-only status via T-SQL .

The system view – sys.databases  returns a column called is_read_only.  

The column returns either 1 or 0

 1 = read only

0 = read write

   SELECT [name] ,is_read_only  
   FROM sys.databases  
   ORDER BY [name]
