Can you temporarily turn off database changes in Microsoft SQL Server?
ru flag

In a coming update, I will need to convert multiple tables in our server from UTF-16 to UTF-8. I expect this will take multiple hours.

Is there a good way to turn off INSERTS and UPDATES, but still allow SELECTS in the database?

Or do I need to block changes at the business level / turn off the database while the update is happening?

However it doesn't pause despite setting the auto-pause to 1 hour.

Looking in Query Performance Insight, I can see there is a query which regularly polls th ...
