MS SQL 2008 – problems with read-only database

7 Jun

When trying to put the database offline/enable read_write  you get this message:

Error 3101
Severity Level 16
Message Text
Exclusive access could not be obtained because the database is in use.

Here’s what I did to solve the case:
  1. close all query windows towards the database
  2. always use “use master” in the first row when working towards the database
  3. code
    1. user master
    2. go
    3. alter database [name] set read_write with no_wait
    4. go
