FIX: Error 5180 when you use the ONLINE option to rebuild an index in SQL Server 2005

Extended support for SQL Server 2005 ends on April 12, 2016

If you are still running SQL Server 2005 after April 12, 2016, you will no longer receive security updates and technical support. We recommend upgrading to SQL Server 2014 and Azure SQL Database to achieve breakthrough performance, maintain security and compliance, and optimize your data platform infrastructure. Learn more about the options for upgrading from SQL Server 2005 to a supported version here.

Symptoms
When you use the ONLINE option to rebuild an index in Microsoft SQL Server 2005, the operation fails, and the following error message is logged in the SQL Server error log:
<date><time> spid<spid> Error: 5180, Severity: 22, State: 1.
<date><time> spid<spid> Could not open File Control Bank (FCB) for invalid file ID 29440 in database 'dbname'. Verify the file location. Execute DBCC CHECKDB.

Cause
This issue occurs because the B-tree nodes of the index are shrunk incorrectly if the insert mode for B-tree traversal is used.
