Hi All,

Running SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition. The environment runs 24/7

Had a normal indexing job...but this was obviously being blocked by user processes.

Changed to Online Indexing...but i'm still having this issue which I don't understand why.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Denesh

Online index rebuilds still require a schema lock. Can you inspect the type of lock? What type of statement is blocking the rebuild?
