    Can someone remind me what's the DMV that replaces sp_who in sql 2005? Supposed to be able to pass the database name to see spids on specific database.
    I though it was dm_exec_connections, but there's no database param option.

    I don't see any replacement to SP_who in SQL 2005, but there are few DMVs added to get more information.

    Let me see whether we can get more information about what you're after.

    Here's how to do it:

    select * from sys.dm_exec_requests
    where database_id = db_id ('master')
