Kill Processes in a Database

By Bruce Szabo,

This script kills all the processes using a given database.  It is useful for removing users from a database so it can be restored.

To use this script change the server variable and the database variable at the top of the script.  Notifications are written to the windows application eventlog.

Use this script at your own risk. It is always best to make sure you have an understanding of a script before implementing it.
