Detaching/Attaching SCCM 2012 Database

After checking the logs, I found the following event being reported continuously:


After some digging around, I found a Microsoft KB that addresses this exact problem:

Part of the issue is that when you detach and attach a database ( a perfectly supported SQL action) the trustworthy database flag is turned to off.

Recommendation: Use backup/restore method to relocate the database than using attach/detach.
