Three Administrative Scripts
April 12, 2002
Here's a package of three useful administrative scripts, one of which is the "Terminate All User Processes" listed below. Here's a brief description of the other two scripts:
uspSetSingleUser (as follows from its name) sets a database in single user /dbo only mode. It utilizes uspKillAllProcesses and can be used for restore database automation.
uspShrinkDbLog7 will replace the transaction log for a given SQL Server 7 database with a new one. Can be a good alternative to DBCC SHRINKFILE in a situation when the transaction log is unintentionally overgrown; for example, as a result of numerous backup log operation failures. It should also work -- but does not make much sense -- with SQL Server 2000.
The scripts are conveniently located in a database called DBAservice. Tested in SQL Server 7, the scripts should also work with SQL Server 2000.
