How to recover msdb database from suspect mode

 It was Monday 9th Jun 47 degr. temperature of Delhi-NCR. Temperature was like boiling me and database. When I reached my office( @ 8.45 am) got an alert from one of Server.
“MSDB is in suspected mode”
At the same time comes in my mind, this issue will boil me today.. I just tried to cool my self through cold drink then connected server from my local system using windows authentication mode..

Suddenly faced Error….



The situation I faced  "It was really boil-able  in summer " in  48 degree @ 12 PM bcz automation tasks and backup was failed .. I started digging inside server. I Attempted 4 tests to Resolve the issue but no one helped me:-
EXEC sp_resetstatus 'MSDB'
Warning: You must recover this database prior to access.

Command(s) completed successfully.

Msg 5058, Level 16, State 6, Line 1
Option 'EMERGENCY' cannot be set in database 'MSDB'.

Restoring Test

Then finally I shut down sql server services and copy the msdbdata and msdblog file from template folder and pasted into data folder where system files locating.

Then errors goes out when I restarted back the server. But msdb was showing in single user mode.

Then I  bring back msdb in multiuser from single user mode through alter database msdb set multi_user . After that I restore msdb from last previous days backup.It brings my server in previous and actual state..

Now I am happy but the temperature is still on same state growing hopefully this month end will come monsoon. 


  1. This is amazing, this worked for me after so many failed.

  2. Each of these Changes is communicated to the database. The change is first made on the "read/write" database and then replicated to the remote database copy. create mysql dashboard

  3. Your good knowledge and kindness in playing with all the pieces were very useful. I don’t know what I would have done if I had not encountered such a step like this.

How to encrypt and decrypt Table data in postgres

For encrypting and decrypting , we must use the bytea data type on the column which we implement. Bcoz bytea will use the pgcrypto method by default. However, you will need to create the pgcrypto extension to enable these functions as they are not pre-defined in PostgreSQL/PPAS. Example CREATE EXTENSION pgcrypto; CREATE TABLE userinfo (username varchar(20), password bytea); >>    Inserting the data in an encrypted format INSERT INTO userinfo VALUES(' suman ',encrypt('111222','password','aes')); select * from userinfo ; >>    Retrieving the data as decrypted format SELECT decrypt(password,decode('password','escape'::text),'aes'::text) FROM userinfo; Thanks for reading Plz dont forget to like Facebook Page..

Validation of the schema model for data package failed. Error SQL71562: Error validating element has an unresolved refrence to object xx.dbo.xxxx external refrences are not supported when creating a package from this platform . Reason: The reason of the this error was; some functions of project was dependent on master database and only single database was being deploy to SQL Azure. DACFx must block Export when object definitions (views, procedures, etc.) contain external references, as Azure SQL Database does not allow cross-database external references So, this error was coming. Solution : I suggested him to create those function to locally
