Thanks for the Reply Chris. So SQL Monitor doesn't periodically recheck to see if the database is back online after being marked as offline?
I know that it repeatedly checks to see if the state changes from online to anything other than online. I've seen the database unavailable alert when performing a restore or if SQL monitor checks a SQL Server after a restart before all of the databases have gone through crash recovery.
Either way, that is good to know. I'll have to remember to recheck the instance in SQL Monitor the next time the instance is restarted.
