how to stop the exclusively access to the SQL database
Posted on 2006-05-16
I'm using a third party software that is storing the data in an SQL 2000 Database on my Server. Using the "designer tool" of that software I was working on the database design. Then this designer software crashed and I can not access the databases with that tool anymore, as I receive the message "you cannot open this database exclusively as it is already in use" when I try to open them.
I restarted and bootet everything, but could not find the way to "unlock" the sql databse.
