I have SQL 7 database that all of a sudden has a mark next to the name (if you are looking in EM) as 'single user'.
When I try to open any of the table, I am getting the error:
Error 22285:SQL-DMO Database 'MyDatabase'; already open and can only be open by one user

How would I resolve this?

I found this on the web, that I am going to try:

ALTER DATABASE Mydatabase SET MULTI_USER WITH ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE

What do you think?

That did not work - It keeps coming back with:
The database is already open....can not open it

I am sorry I forgot to mention that this is a SQL 7 database. I did not use the query above, I used a SQL 7
I think it was : set db_option 'single user' , 'false'
but that won't work, because the databse is in single user mode, and it will only allow one conetion. Currently I am disconnecting the server from the network, and rebooting....

Ok, after disconnecting the server form the network. I still wasn't able to do:
Exec sp_dboption VisitorReg, 'single user', 'false'
When I wen to database property in EM, I was able to un-check single user. And it worked!

I just don't know how did the database ended up being in single user to begin with. Can the database automatically go into 'single user'. It must be a SQL batch doing it, maybe?

Thanks

I am showing that one job has failed, the message is as follows:
Integrity Check Job for VisitorReg has failed.

The maintanance plan that executes this job, is set to write to the windows event-viewer only. The event viewer size however is too small. So at this point I know that this job has failed, I just don't know why?

I looked under SQL server Logs and I saw logs of the above maintanance plan executing. I did not see any errors logged however.
