I created a nonclustered columnstore index on a table with 240mil rows. Then, I performed many updates to the table. Subsequently, the weekly index maintenance process (Ola Hallengren) ran. Now there is a background process running (“Create Index”) that prevents me from dropping the index, dropping the table, etc. It’s also taking many locks. I just want the columnstore index to be removed, but the background process prevents any other DDL. Internet searches are not giving me any clues here. What can I do? Thanks in advance, Glen Schwickerath Loved your SQL PASS sessions.
