Subject: RE: ORA-01652: unable to extend temp segmentThanks,Had read the article, but I am interested as to why Oracle is doing a full table scan instead of full index scan for online index rebuilds.

They do full table scan on the table.However, in both cases, old index segment is kept until new one is ready to use and switch to it is done. Also the journal IOTs used for online rebuilds are stored in the target tablespace, so if you've got lots of transaction s going on while you are rebuilding the index onl ine, you need additional space in target tablespace.Tanel.
