Hi,

The attached script is causing blocking issue on our prod servers. Please let me know how to avoid the blocking issue i.e., is there any modifications required in that attached script.

Sorry, didn't see that you had a script file.  Change this line

 SET @command = N''ALTER INDEX '' + @indexname + N'' ON '' + @schemaname + N''.'' + @objectname + N'' REBUILD '' ;

to

 SET @command = N''ALTER INDEX '' + @indexname + N'' ON '' + @schemaname + N''.'' + @objectname + N'' REBUILD  WITH (ONLINE = ON)'' ;

The rest of the script looks fine.

Just remember in your scripts you use the dm_db_index_physical_stats and that is a function that will go out and take some locks.  Not always will there be extreme blocking, but it is not a lightweight operation.  That will block things the way you are doing it, but it will always be the case and should be done at a time that there is less activity on the database.

You might also want to try to do that during "off hours" . . . doing it during "business hours" is not a Best Practice.

That's a good point.  Online index operations are available only in SQL Server Enterprise, Developer, and Evaluation editions in SQL 2008.
