I added -m; at the beginning of the startup parameters to start the server in single user mode. I then restarted the server. When i tried to connect to the server, I'm getting the below message
"Login failed for user 'DomainName\Admin'. Reason: Server is in single user mode. Only one administrator can connect at this time. (.Net SqlClient Data Provider)"
I tried connecting using sqlcmd. But the same meesage came up.
I stopped all the services[text search, analysis, integration, reporting].
No applications are using this server.
Any idea would be appreciated....
