  • Could a script or any other job do it?

    SELECT i.name AS Index_Name, i.index_id, i.type_desc, s.name AS 'Schema_Name', o.name AS Table_Name
    FROM sys.indexes i
    JOIN sys.objects o on o.object_id = i.object_id
    JOIN sys.schemas s on s.schema_id = o.schema_id
    WHERE i.is_disabled = 1
    ORDER BY
    i.name

  • Of course it's script like ALTER INDEX ON dbo.Table DISABLE and that can be executed by a user or by a Job.

  • Yes, here's an example script from SQL Server documentation:

    USE AdventureWorks2012;  
    GO  
    -- disables the IX_Employee_OrganizationLevel_OrganizationNode index  
    -- on the HumanResources.Employee table  
    ALTER INDEX IX_Employee_OrganizationLevel_OrganizationNode ON HumanResources.Employee  
    DISABLE;
