I will find the script very useful,tho i have one question,
what are u executing when u said :
The script has an error....I was using SetMessages as my stored proc for having my custom error messages. You can remove that piece of code from the first proc usp_DropDB and you will be fine or alternatively you can make a change to the usp_ForceDropDb stored procedure and replace the statement in the end:
"EXEC usp_DropDB @DatabaseName"
SET @DatabaseName = QUOTENAME(@DatabaseName)
EXEC ('DROP DATABASE ' + @DatabaseName )

Hi, thanks for this one!
Mnd goal is to publish a content database from staging to live, safely, from an admin web page. The wrinkle is that the DB must remain alive on the web during the process ... I plan to modify the DSNs on the fly.
One small point, when I use this in SQL 7 it returns an error "You can't kill your own process."
This error was causing the calling DTS package to fail on this step.
I simply added a clause to the SELECT of spids to exclude "@@SPID" which is the current process.
WHERE dbid =
(SELECT dbid FROM master.dbo.sysdatabases
WHERE name = @DatabaseName)
AND spid <> @@SPID
It worked fine and once again I appreciate the resource, I don't know much T-SQL ... I'm actually a web guy using Cold Fusion with SQL Server.
