    That’s nice in theory. Practice does not support the above statement at least not in my case in Siebel implementation with SQL Server 2005 database platform.

    After checking indexes on SQL Server I found 87 redundant indexes in SQL Server that will increase size of OLTP create overheads in indexes maintenance during INSERT/DELETE/UPDATE operations. After speaking with Siebel support people, the answer is that removing existing indexes is not recommanded and by performing this operation the SQL Server will process data with less overgeads but in other hand it will make Oracle slow (despite the fact that we use SQL Server as backand). My conclusion was that their concern is more related to Oracle performance than to SQL Server.

    Something is strange here. When I mention that I will remove duplicate indexes, thy warned me that it will create support issues.
