    Just a quick clarification:

    For a “proper” deadlock you need to processes (lets say P1 and P2) and two resources they both need (lets say A and B). You can think of two rows in the database, two files, etc.

    If P1 locks A and tries to lock B, while P2 locks B and tries to lock A, it is a deadlock (because neither of them can fully succeed).

    Now, in a DB system, you normally shouldn’t see these types of problems (I have no experience with MS SQL server, but they shouldn’t have this problem either). One problem which can happen, is that the snapshot creation program needs a table level lock, which it can’t obtain until all the row level locks are removed. But this is just a theory.

    Best regards.
