    I want to made a database restauration with the smo microsoft component, but the database is not in exclusive mode ?
    I made (I work with c# - SQL 2008 R2):
    1 - I made a dispose on my dbcontext. Like this : 


    instance.m_Diagram = null;
    2-I call the Garbage collector
    3-I made my database restauration
    ==> but the database restauration doesn't works, I thing that my context still exist !
    (==> the restauration doesn't work because I can't access to the database in exclusive mode with the smo component, I think that there is again a connection with my diagram or context !)
    Please, do you have a solution to be sure that my "diagram" or "context" is close ?
    In advance,

    Hi Richard,

     The context is managed by an underlying Database object. If you want to be sure all of your connections  are closed I suggest you to dispose of the Database object  after you dispose your context. You can get that database object via your context, however the access to it is protected so you should expose it in a partial class.

    public partial class MyContextClass
        public Database GetDatabase()
                return  this.GetScope().Database;       

    Then you can dispose it after you dispose your context:
    public void DisposeContextAndDatabase()
        Database db = myContextInstance.GetDatabase();
