I want to take a database offline.  there are mulitiple databases on this sql instance.  I don't want to detach the database and i don't want the other databases in the sql instance to be affected at all.

the database that needs to go offline needs to not allow users to connect at all
i have sql 2008 and another server running sql 2012.
how can i accomplish this?

Thank you

Disable the users, or Change maximum number of connections to 0.

Or, simplest, back it up with NoRecovery.
