Checked the CMDB and found in front of the Symantec CMDB is written 'In Recovery'. Database were gone to recovery mode because the reboot and the corruption before that.


Check the database logs to know the phase of the recovery. It will also show the estimated time needed for the recovery to get completed.

If it will take longer that usual to get completed, usually means that the database may have issues that were not able to be resolved. You may be better to restore the database to a safe backup .

*You can also check the SQL server logs and Altiris logs to know the reason of the crash.
