Backup job failed last night - viewing the history logs gave the following message "Could not find database ID 15. Database may not be activated yet or may be in transition"

Going to the database I tried to review the properties and got the following message:

Property Collation is not available for Database '[xxxx]'. This property may not exist for this object, or may not be retrievable due to insufficient access rights. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo)

There have been no changes to this database in quite some time. This is a 2008 SQL Server enterprise edition 64 bit environment. Any comments / URLs would be appreciated.

Thank you

This is a followup to this issue. Running query SP_HELPDB does not list the database with it's owner. The query does provide the following message:
No permission to access database 'database name'.

Any comments / URLs would be appreciated.

check your sqlserver errorlog file to see what it is reporting about that database.
Keep in mind, you may have to process more than one errorlog file to get to the first occurence of its reporting errors for that database.

From the error description, it indicates that:

Your test database uses case-insensitive collation, where your prod database uses case-sensitive collation.

The error indicates that SQL cannot find the specified database.

Please verify that the database name used in the script EXACTLY matches the actual database name, including case.

If it doesn't already, have the script print out the value of the database name as the script is executing.

I see this is a old post but I got the similar error today and I got it fixed through just taking the database offline and bring online. I got this error twice now and got it fixed the same way.
