Script to kill only connections to specific DB

Imagin there are two DBs and two applications in production and we need to remove all connections to only one of the DBs. I can stop and start but it recycles both DBs. How can I script to kill only those connections that are connected to specific DB?
If I do it in a loop based on information in sysobjects and Kill those specific connections, is it good approach? CanadaDBA

I think you can see this info in sysprocesses select spid from master..sysprocesses where dbid=db_id(‘DBName’) Now Kill all the spids

you can also use sp_who; little programming is required to create a loop based program that can kill all users specific to one db only.
–Display all active processes
USE master
EXEC sp_who ‘active’ I have not faced any problem while killing db users.. SQL BOL says: – KILL is commonly used to terminate a process that is blocking other important processes with locks, or to terminate a process that is executing a query that is using necessary system resources. System processes and processes running an extended stored procedure cannot be terminated. Use KILL very carefully, especially when critical processes are running. You cannot kill your own process. Other processes not to kill are: AWAITING COMMAND

Hi Luis, I have already tried EXEC @SQLStr but I got the following error: Server: Msg 2812, Level 16, State 62, Line 37
Could not find stored procedure ‘kill 58’.
Oops! I found my mistake. I should use the command this way: EXEC (@SQLStr) Thanks, CanadaDBA
