execute this query under master database: – select * from sysdatabases where dbid=38 find the name/ status of database from output and re-check the maintenance plan against that database. Deepak Kumar –An eye for an eye and everyone shall be blind
After executing above query i got this output:
Database Name:ABC
Status :4194312
Status2 :1090519040 This database is online and i am able to query. My problem is why this error is coming in maintenance plan where as my database is online and running fine for other task.

I suggest you to apply SP4 to SQL server and with this the error might have fixed.
In SQL 2K it is fixed with SP3a. Satya SKJ
