In this session we’ll cover some of the various states that a SQL Server database can be in. We’ll look at useful states like OFFLINE and STANDBY, as well as damaged states like SQL Server SUSPECT or RECOVERY_PENDING. You’ll learn how databases get into those states, and the proper techniques to bring your data safely back online.
