MSSql: Database cannot be opened. Marked as suspected


the WSUS DB (MSSQL Express 2005) of a customer won’t start after a hardware failure and bluescreen. Here are the steps which recovers the database back in an usable state.

The SQL Server Instance logs errors like this

"Could not redo log record (183366:6166:54), for transaction ID (0:117029942), on page (1:657511), database 'SUSDB' (database ID 5). Page: LSN = (183267:2976:260), type = 2. Log: OpCode = 2, context 3, PrevPageLSN: (183366:1717:287). Restore from a backup of the database, or repair the database."

in “C:\Windows\SYSMSI\SSEE\MSSQL.2005\MSSQL\LOG\ERRORLOG” and the database is down.

c:\> sqlcmd -S np:\\.\pipe\MSSQL$MICROSOFT##SSEE\sql\query
