If that helps, I came up with a simple mechanism to lock down a database used by an application. I just make sure user authentication in the application first checks another database with info on database availability in a table *before* connecting to the "real" database used by the application.

That way, all I have to do to lock down the application database is to update one record in the authentication database to make sure the application will not try to connect after that. So the application first connects to an "availability" database and if everything is available, it then really connects to the application database.
