Subject How to determine if database is in backup mode
Author Tom Munro Glass
If you backup a database using nbackup, and the nbackup process dies for some
reason, the database gets stuck in backup mode because the 'alter database
end backup' statement is never run.

How can I determine if a database is in backup mode? If it is, I can
execute 'alter database end backup' or use 'nbackup -N' before I start doing
the next nbackup.
