In my shop I have a DTS package scheduled at early hours of the day. It failed today with a deadlock error and I had to re run the job and it failed again saying deadlock situation.
I can't kill the process which is another important process happening at that time (blocking process). So, I decided to run the DTS package manually, and to my surprise it ran successfully without any deadlock errors, at that time the blocking process is still alive.
Here, I had a question would the deadlock situations be captured in DTS pakcage run manually or automated ? Or is there something else which I need to know.
Thanks in advance

Just because a blocking process is "still alive" doesn't mean it's still blocking. Could it have been past the statement that was causing the blocking in the first place? If you haven't wrapped the entire blocking process into a BEGIN...COMMIT transaction, this is quite possible.
