Restore Database Using .Net Program

Restore Database Using .Net Program

(OP)
I'm trying to restore a DB using a stored procedure called from a .Net program and would like a little help.

CODE

-- Error checking removed
ALTER DATABASE Cemetery1 SET SINGLE_USER WITH ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE;
RESTORE DATABASE Cemetery1 FROM DISK = @RestoreFileName
ALTER DATABASE Cemetery1 SET MULTI_USER; 
I get an error saying it cannot do this because it is use by this session. I understand that because I accessed the stored proc that is in the DB I am trying to restore. It also says I should use the master DB for this. Does that mean I have to set up a user and the stored procedure in the master DB? Then open the master DB from the .Net program and run the master DB proc. I'm a little worried about what permissions I would have to give this user in the master DB. Any guidance on how to accomplish this would be appreciated.

RE: Restore Database Using .Net Program

In order for a user to restore a database, there are certain server level permissions required. Assuming your user already has those permissions, then they will already be allowed to connect to master to perform certain operations (like restoring a database).

Basically, what I'm saying is that you don't need to do anything special to give the user permissions to the master database. Simply connect to that database and do the restore.

I'm assuming I have to put the stored proc into the master database. Doses that sound right?
