Take a database offline when it has open connections
I want to take a database offline to do some testing. When I select the database > right click > Select All Tasks > Take Offline I get the error:
[Microsoft SQL-DMO (ODBC SQLState: 42000)] Error 5070: [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Database state cannot be changed while other users are using the database 'myDB'
1) How do you determine who or what is connected to the database?
2) How do you kill those connections?

You can use sp_who to see who's connected:
You can then identify from those results who is connected and then kill those processes using the KILL statement with the associated spid:
I have 104 connections. Is there a simple way to kill them all at once?
