one DB affecting processes

When I run sys.sysprocesses or sp_who2, i get
Msg 952, Level 16, State 1, Procedure sp_who2, Line 89
Database 'TRACKER' is in transition. Try the statement later.

why would one DB put a hold on all?

thanks

Management Studio probably has a lock on some system table. Try stopping all running instances of management studio and try the query again.

yes, if you are using sql server 2005 its sqlwb.exe. SQL server 2008 uses ssms.exe
