Hello,

I have a scenario where I need to create a Clustered Index (CI) on a very large SQL Server 2012 database table. This table has about approximately 10 billion rows, 500 GB in size. The job ran for about 20 hours into it and then fails with error: "Out of disk space in tempdb". My tempDB size is 1.8TB, but yet it's still not enough.

I have exhausted Google search and decided to post it here to get some extra help.

Here is my script:

CREATE CLUSTERED INDEX CI_IndexName
ON TableName(Column1,Column2)
WITH (MAXDOP= 4, ONLINE=ON, SORT_IN_TEMPDB = ON, DATA_COMPRESSION=PAGE)
ON sh_WeekDT(Day_DT)
GO

Thank you in advance for all your help.
