thanks,

is there any other command just to close all the connections??

regards
viji

The command i wrote would be sufficient. the other way is to terminate all open connections using KILL.

ALTER DATABASE YourDB SET RESTRICTED_USER WITH ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE
ALTER DATABASE YourDB SET SINGLE_USER WITH ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE

Or this will do the job. Sorry about the cursor, an old script but you get the idea. sp_ on master will make available to all dbs, bad practice, not that you seem to mind Smile..

USE [master]
go

CREATE PROCEDURE sp_killprocess

@dbname varchar(128)

AS

SET NOCOUNT ON
SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER OFF

declare @kill_id int
declare @query varchar(320)

declare killprocess_cursor cursor for

select a.spid from sysprocesses a join
sysdatabases b on a.dbid=b.dbid where b.name=@dbname

open killprocess_cursor

fetch next from killprocess_cursor into @kill_id

while(@@fetch_status =0)
begin
set @query = 'kill '+ convert(varchar,@kill_id)
exec (@query)
fetch next from killprocess_cursor into @kill_id
end

close killprocess_cursor
deallocate killprocess_cursor


GO

The first two lines from the post of Victor are other two methods on how to disconnect all connections while your db will be still online. Single_user puts the database in single usesr mode(only one user can connect at a time).
If u're putting the database in restricted_users, only members of sysadmin would be able to connect to the database.

Do we really need to stop the services? i guess once u detach a db, the mdf and ldfs will not be in use by sql server and hence u can move the files without restarting the services.

VIJI,
I am new to SQL but i am going to try your advice.

1) how stop all current transaction to that DB (let my db name be Analytic)

2) after taking it offline Just copying the Analytic.mdf and analytic.ldf to network location with click of your mouse will work? ( because I tried it doing it w/o taking it offline and gave me error: other users might be using it please stop the process and try again)


3) if yes , then I can delete current mdf and ldf file and just create a new one with same names ?

4) then bring it online and everything should work normal , Any idea of it not working when taking it online?
except the fact I lose current data in production

Please advice.

Best
Ash

This is not true. The only time you would need to do ths is if there are jobs that will access this database. And, if that is true, you will only need to stop and disable the affected jobs. Stopping the service is overkill.
