Hello all,

I know this may be a bit fetched... I am trying to simulate a windows service crash in order to test a debug diagnostic software ( debug diagnostic ) on our W2003 server.

We have been experiencing random crashes of the windows Oracle service and I am trying to evaluate if this debug tool is will work for diagnosing my issue.

My question is how I can make the windows process crash via a db script which will eventually halt the DB.

Any ideas? much appreciated.

J

You can execute an OS command from PL/SQL (search for this here or on AskTom).
You have OS command to kill a process or stop Windows (search for this on Windows help or forum).
Combine the 2.

Ok I killed a background process with orakill which lead to the db falling but not the service Sad

Therefore not allowing me to test the tool.

Why not using "net stop" to stop the service?

It seems that if the service doesn't crash abnormally the MS tool doesn't create a dump file.

I even tried taskkill /F /PID <oracleprocess>

We are just trying to determine why the oracle service just halts on our prod server without creating any logs.
