Database is in transition

· Uncategorized

When trying to put some old SQL2000 databases offline using my SQL2012 SSMS, there was one that generated all kinds of unexpected errors. However the state of the DB stated running, no one could connect. Any connection using USE <DBName> generated  an error …Database is in transition…

Turns out I was causing the problem myself. Issue disappeared when closing my SSMS (disconnecting from the SQL server didn’t do the trick).
