When we run SINGLE_USER command for a database from the master database, does it give the chance for another process to connect and become the single user connected?

I guess when you run that from that database itself, it will assume that you are the only user.

The purpose to do this is to do a restore of the database(so all the users are gone). that is why I am thinking of running it from the master DB; but wondering if anyone else will be able to connect before the restore begins.

Thanks.

tbsgadi,
It does not tell specifically in the articles, but I assume, that even when you run the command from master DB, it considers you as the only user, and thus killing all other connections?

Thanks
