Hello Everyone,

We are using one SQL Server 2000 version, and now one database is Emergency mode and in single user mode. The bad thing is we don't have any backups for that database but we have only the data files and log files. How can we bring that database to online??????

Please suggest on this issue.. Its need to be fixed ASAP.

Thanks In Advance....

Why is the DB in emergency mode? How did it get there?
What errors are there for that DB in the error log?

The folder and/or files mentioned in those errors don't exist. Rectify that problem and restart SQL.

Hi,

After restart of server also the database in emergency mode but those files we can able to see. We copied all the .mdf and .ldf files to some new location and created the required database in that new sql server by attaching these mdf and ldf files. Now we have atleast one source for current use.
It seems to be issue has been fixed.:-)
Planning to do the same thing on the emergency mode database also.

Thanks
&
