SQL Server - Script to kill processes associated with a particular database?

I have a routine when updating the backend on a client database:

1) I make the necessary changes to the database on my client's SQL Server.
2) I backup my client's database.
3) I transfer the BAK file to my development server.
4) On my development server, I kill all processes associated with the database.  (Image 1.)  This takes a while.
5) I run a little script on my server to restore the database using the BAK file and set the recovery model to simple.

It would be cool if I could add a little code to my script that kills all processes associated the target database.  This way, step 4 goes away.  Does someone know the TSQL or can they point me to a useful link?

How about this?

DECLARE @DatabaseName nvarchar(50)
SET @DatabaseName = N'dbname'

DECLARE @SQL varchar(max)
SET @SQL = ''

SELECT @SQL = @SQL + 'Kill ' + Convert(varchar, SPId) + ';'
FROM MASTER..SysProcesses
WHERE DBId = DB_ID(@DatabaseName) AND SPId <> @@SPId

EXEC(@SQL)

One another way is that you Can use
As i understood your problem

If you are using SQL 2005 or later,
Use sp_resetstatus 'Database Name'
and
"ALTER DATABASE <dbname> SET ONLINE |OFFLINE.

The OP isn't trying to fix a suspect database, they are trying to unconditionally kill connections in a test database before restore.

AlokJain0412,

I see where you're going with the OFFLINE setting.

cmangus,

Couldn't get your code to run, but I have a hunch if I fiddle with it for a while, I'll get it.

Thanks guys.
