Error Reverting a Database to a Database Snapshot.


Applies to: Microsoft SQL Server 2005, Microsoft SQL Server 2008.



Error Message.

The following error occurs when reverting a database to a database snapshot:

(local)(\amorillo): Msg 5070, Level 16, State 2, Line 4
Database state cannot be changed while other users are using the database 'AWDB_Snapshot_20080522'

Solution.

Drop any process accessing the database snapshot using Activity Monitor.

To open Activity Monitor in Microsoft SQL Server 2005, see the steps below:

1) In SQL Server Management Studio, connect to the server using Object Explorer
2) Expand Management
3) Double-click Activity Monitor.


To open Activity Monitor in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 RC 0, see the steps below:

1) In SQL Server Management Studio, connect to the server using Object Explorer
2) Make a right click on the server you are connected
3) Select "Activity Monitor"

Once you have opened Activity Monitor, drop any process displayed that is accessing the database snapshot, making a right click on the process and choosing "Kill Process".





Once you have dropped any process accessing the database snapshot, try to do the revert operation again.
