This will give you an idea for all the locks for the target. 5. Perform RSRV check to analyze the error and correct it in relevant scenarios.Monitoring - Approach and Correction: Description | Approach/Analysis| Correction| Failure in the Delete Index or Create Index step| Go to the target and check if any load is running| Trigger the chain ahead if indexes are already deleted in other process chain| Long running Delete Index or Create Index job| Compare the last run time of job.
