Use this task when you need to perform maintenance on a database and the database must not stop until you are done.
Disable the autostop database from stopping automatically by running a StartDatabase task on the database.
If the database is stopped, it starts and it does not stop automatically. If the database is running, it continues to run and it does not stop automatically.
Perform the maintenance that requires the database to continue running.
Re-enable the database to stop automatically by running a StopDatabase task with the unconditionally parameter set to 0.
Database mydatabase is an autostart and autostop database. Fred must perform maintenance on the mydatabase database that requires the database to run throughout the process. Fred runs the following task to prevent the database from autostopping:
