  • Could you run below command and confirm it still stuck in emergency mode:

    SELECT state_desc FROM sys.databases WHERE name='db_name'

  • Hi, please check your event viewer and SQL Server LOG. Should be a logical consistency-based I/O error although it is strange that DBCC has reported no errors

    Best regards

  • Hi Balajik,

    "Also, i have tried to run the command to bring online, but command running for long time with Suspended status.."

    In addition to other post, please check the following things.

    1. Run sp_who2 to check that if there is blocked process. If blocked process exists, run “KILL <spid>“ to kill it.
    2. Make sure that there are no connections to the database from other applications. You can run the below scripts to find connections.

    USE master
    SELECT * FROM sys.sysprocesses WHERE dbid = DB_ID('DatabaseName')

    3. You might need to stop and start SQL Server Service using SQL Server Management Studio, then check if you can set the database online.

    Besides, to recover database which is in emergency mode, you can review the following similar thread.
