The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.


Is it possible to deny all new connections temporarily in SA12 and/or SA16? This would be great for updating the schema and debugging.

You can do that via the system procedure sa_server_option when setting the options "ConnsDisabled" or "ConnsDisabledForDB" to YES, i.e. with something like

call sa_server_option('ConnsDisabled', 'YES')


call sa_server_option('ConnsDisabledForDB', 'YES')

and reset them to 'NO' afterwards.

Confine that very old FAQ here including sample code:
