Hello guys!

One of my users says that they cannot login to the database system.  

Upon checking the event logs, we discovered something like this:

Process ID 71:12 owns resources that are blocking processes on Scheduler 5.

I found out that we had a batch processes that was running that was running for hours.  When I try to login to the Enterprise manager to find out, I cannot login anymore.  It hangs.   I thought of DAC but it is not available for SQL Server 2000.  

Any bright ideas would help.

Thanks!

note : in order to kill process, be sure that it won't cause you any other problem.

the problem is i couldn't even logon to the query analyzer.  the logon hanged for some reason.
anyway, I had no choice but to restart the sql server and agent services.  after that, we are able to log on successfully.

i wonder if there were any other workaround other than restarting the services.  would like to to hear other suggestions for my own benefit.
