SQL 2005 active database

I have two databases configured with similar names. An application on my network communicates with one of the databases. I want to identify which one without looking at the client side. Is there anything I can view in SQL 2005 that will tell me which one is the active one. thanks

No.

But you can use  
SELECT  C.session_id ,
        C.connect_time ,
        C.net_transport ,
        C.protocol_type ,
        C.client_net_address ,
        C.client_tcp_port ,
        C.local_net_address ,
        C.local_tcp_port ,
        C.connection_id ,
        C.parent_connection_id ,
        S.spid ,
        S.blocked ,
        S.status ,
        S.sid ,
        S.hostname ,
        S.program_name ,
        S.hostprocess ,
        S.cmd ,
        S.nt_domain ,
        S.nt_username ,
        S.net_address ,
        S.net_library ,
        S.loginame 
FROM    sys.dm_exec_connections C
        INNER JOIN sys.sysprocesses S ON C.session_id = S.spid;

Open in new window

to see who's connected to your database(s).

In the same instance? That's impossible.
Please clarify where those two databases are.

I want to identify which one without looking at the client side.
Assuming that the databases with the same name are in different instances, you need to connect to each instance and run the command sp_who2. This stored procedure returns all connections to the respective instance and has information about the user, application and the client computer that is connecting.
