I've run the following commands:

Sp_configure 'allow updates', 1 
Reconfigure with override
GO
sp_resetstatus 'msdb'
GO
update master..sysdatabases set status = status | -32768
where name = 'msdb'
Sp_configure 'allow updates', 0
Reconfigure with override

DBCC checkdb(msdb)
ALTER DATABASE msdb SET SINGLE_USER



When I look at the properties for the database I see that it IS in single user mode and it's in standby/emergency mode but when I run the following command

DBCC CheckDB (msdb, REPAIR_ALLOW_DATA_LOSS)



I get the following error:

Msg 7919, Level 16, State 2, Line 2
Repair statement not processed. Database needs to be in single user mode.
DBCC execution completed. If DBCC printed error messages, contact your system administrator.


Am I missing something? Is it not REALLY in single user mode?

couldn't ALTER DATABASE msdb SET SINGLE_USER fail if other processes are in it?
does SQL2000 have WITH ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE?

ALTER DATABASE msdb SET SINGLE_USER WITH ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE

Both

ALTER DATABASE msdb SET SINGLE_USER



and

ALTER DATABASE msdb SET SINGLE_USER WITH ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE



return

Command(s) completed successfully.


but any attempt to run the dbcc command still gives me that same error. The disparity that I'm running into is the database property which states that msdb is in single user mode and yet still getting an error that it is not.

Yeah, ok, I'm an idiot without my morning coffee.. forgot to restart the server in single user mode for the system tables.. I'll give that a go and let you folks know if there are additional issues.
