Database going to Recovery, while accessible.

  • one of the 3rd Party DB's is going to recovery state. Whithout any reason I could find.

    The log shows one DBCC CHECKDB after another is running on that database.

    Strange, I can access and query the db in ssms.

    I did repair_rebuild and it is working again, but after some time the problem arises again.

    Any ideas on this?

  • Turned out, the database had AUTO_CLOSE on. and Backup with veeam caused the troubles.

  • Auto close is a pain. Happy you fixed it.

  • @JohnyRotten,

    Wow.  I've never actually heard of any third party (nor anyone else, for that matter) using auto-close on a database before.  Thanks for taking the time to post what you found.  It's proof positive that it does happen in real life.

  • yepp, it was my fault to not check the db for policies. It was a software called TCPCM by Siemens (!) checking the database for invalid objects, i found a few stored procs with invalid table references... seems to be a product of quality  O_o.

    I learned to take extra care whenever I have to permit an installer to create a database...
