Many a times it becomes impossible to find out the active connections to a SQL Server database. That could create a lot of irritation
while doing database activities like restoring a database. Below is the code that will show you the active connections to a database.
How to find the active SQL connections
db_name(dbid) as [Database Name],
count(dbid) as [No Of Connections],
loginame as [Login Name]
dbid > 0
How to kill a SQL connection
set nocount on
declare @databasename varchar(100)
declare @query varchar(max)
set @query = ''
set @databasename = 'xxx'
if db_id(@databasename) < 4
print 'system database connection cannot be killeed'
select @query=coalesce(@query,',' )+'kill '+convert(varchar, spid)+ '; '
from master..sysprocesses where dbid=db_id(@databasename)
if len(@query) > 0
Suggessions and comments are welcomed. It's always fun to know new ways of doing things.
