DBCC MSDB Single User

All of a sudden, our Veritas tape backup complained about 0xe0008443 SQL Database Consistency Check failure on the MSDB database.

I tried running:

dbcc checkdb (msdb, repair_allow_data_loss)

but it complained about msdb not being in single user mode.

I tried running:

alter DATABSE MSDB SET SINGLE_USER WITH ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE
GO
dbcc checkdb (msdb, repair_allow_data_loss)
GO
alter DATABASE MSDB SET MULTI_USER WITH ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE
GO
but it generated a syntax error .

I tried right clicking the msdb database and manually going into single user mode, but it said other users had the database.

I tried stopping the sql server agent service, but that didn't help.

Any ideas??

Thanks,
Mike

Hi,

before running the DBCC check did you stop the Veritas tape backup solution which is using the SQL DB. When you set it to Single user mode the same might have made that single connection. So ensure that all applications that are connecting to the SQL database are stopped and then place the DB in single user mode from command line.

then run the checks

nope, I can certainly try stopping veritas.  

BTW: did you spot any syntax error in the script above?

(I presume I need to past the into a query window and run it.

Thx

I'm waiting to schedule some down time for the server - I haven't forgotten, and very much appreciate your suggestion,

yw mike.  as far as your dbcc part is concerned that does not seem to have any error.

the only that you need to do before running that dbcc is to ensure that none of the symantec services in the services.msc are running and then try altering the DB to single user mode forcing active connections to close.

Your problem is that your first line syntax is incorrect.  It should be Database not Databse
