question about rebuild index with smo

Posted on 2014-03-13

The following error is returned when I execute the script if page level locking is disabled

ERROR - Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.FailedOperationException: Reorganize failed for Index 'idx_tms_login_log_date'.  ---> Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Common.ExecutionFailureException: An exception occurred while executing a Transact-SQL statement or batch. ---> System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: The index "idx_log_date" on table "login" cannot be reorganized because page level locking is disabled.

I have modified the script like :

if ($Average_Fragmentation -gt 40.00 -and $Index.IsDisabled -eq $false -and $Index.IsPageLockDisallowed -eq $false)

                  Try {  
                  $A = "REBUILD INDEX"
                  LogIt $SQLREBUILD_LOG " $A of $db $table $index completed" $true  
                  Catch [exception] {                
                  LogIt  $SQLREBUILD_LOG ("ERROR - " + $_.Exception) $true                
                  LogIt  $SQLREBUILD_LOG "" $false                

But no index is rebuild now even if page level locking is not disabled

Why ?

Maybe this helps:

You can also use an alter statement for the index:
ALTER INDEX index_name ON table_name SET (ALLOW_PAGE_LOCKS = ON)

Open in new window

I've had developers use automated tools which build some indexes, or modify indexes for them... and they don't realize the tool is turning off pagelocks or know what it is or care.  Zberteoc's quick alter statement should take care of it for you.  Alternately, you can drill down in Management Studio to the database > Table > Indexes ... then find the specific index you are receiving the error on.  Open it's properties, and select the 'options' page.  You can turn the page locks on for the index there.
Should look something like this.

I assume you 'have to use this script' to perform the maintenance.   Can you confirm that allow page locking his been disallowed for the one index?  I guess I should back up one level... are you receiving the error message for all indexes, or just for the one index that you specified after 'ERROR'?

I receive the message only for this index, it's the reason for that I search to exclude index with page locking disallowed.

Oh, I see.   Check the values being returned to your script and ensure you aren't getting a NULL for Index.IsPageLockDisallowed.
