Set database into single user mode

Today when I need to run DBCC CHECKDB on our customer’s Team Foundation data tier server to repair the affected databases. When I tried to repair the affected database, there is a message “Repair statement not processed. Database needs to be in single user mode.” Single-user mode specifies that only one user at a time can access the database and is generally used for maintenance actions.

To change a database into single user mode, perform the following steps:

Using SQL Server Management Studio.
1. Right click the related database then click Properties.
2. Choose Option page.
3. From Restrict Access option, select SINGLE_USER.
4. Click OK and Open Connections dialog will appear. Click Yes if you want to close all connection connected to the database and change the database on single user mode.
