do you have a enterprise edition of sql2008. if yes they you can do an online restore.

if you dont have a enterprise version then - first you have to kick all the users out and then do a restore.
do a sp_who2  and kill the active connections to the db

Hi,
  How do I know what are active connections after running sp_who2? What is the command to kill active connections?

Thanks.

You identify all the spids that have the dbname you are attempting to restore.
>>What is the command to kill active connections?<<
That would be KILL

find the connections to your DBname when you run sp_who2
find the corresponding spid

to kill ... exec

KILL spid_here

or you can just ask the users to log off while you restore.
