BACKUP DATABASE cannot be used on a database opened in emergency mode.

Error Message:
Msg 3033, Level 16, State 0, Line 1
BACKUP DATABASE cannot be used on a database opened in emergency mode.

Severity level:
16.

Description:
This error message appears when you try to backup a database which is in emergency mode.

Consequences:
The T-SQL statement can be parsed, but causes the error at runtime.

Resolution:
Errors of the Severity Level 16 are generated by the user and can be fixed by the SQL Server user. The statement cannot be executed this way. The database must be set to another mode before it can be backed up.

Versions:
This error message was introduce with SQL Server 2005.

Example(s):
USE MyExample
ALTER DATABASE MyExample
  SET EMERGENCY
GO
BACKUP DATABASE MyExample TO DISK = ‘E:b.bak’
GO
ALTER DATABASE MyExample
  SET ONLINE

Remarks:
In the above example we intentionally set the mode of the MyExample database to emergency, to simulate the error. The BACKUP DATABASE command then raises the error.
