I have a SPID on SQL 2005 that shows in Activity Monitor as "ROLLBACK" mode (because a transaction log filled up, not because it was manually killed). I tried to see how much time it has left to roll back with a
KILL 115 WITH STATUSONLY
but it just said "Status report cannot be obtained. Rollback operation for Process ID 115 is not in progress."
Can I safely issue a "KILL 115" so that I can see the rollback status? Does this actually do anything on a spid currently in rollback?
