Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It sounds like you have both instances trying to attach to the same data files. You’ll want to connect to the instance that has the database working and backup and restore the database. Then go to the instance where it isn’t working correctly and restore the database, changing the folder paths to the files so that they are stored in different places.

    When are you getting this error? What commands are you running when you get this error? SQL Server is a multi-user system, so its normal for more than one user to be able to access the data at a time.
