This means you have live connections to the database.

the best way to do this would be to see the connections and terminate connections.


One way of doing that would be to
[1] Stop the SPTimer server (where applicable )
[2] Stop the SP administration service .(where applicable )
[3] Stop the WWW service on all the web servers.


Best of luck.
