Hi all,

Please,can someone advise how to schedule a job to run every half hour on my local windows machine. The schedule job is to check if the databases are up and running. Right now I am just running a script manually from sqlplus to check the status of the databases. I know cronjob in unix, but I dont know in windows..
Thanks much!

Programs - Accessories - System tools - Scheduled tasks - double click "Add Scheduled Task" and ... well, schedule a task.

You'll need two files: one will be an SQL script and another MS Windows BAT script; something like this:
REM TEST.SQL

SPOOL test.txt
SELECT * FROM dual;
SPOOL OFF;
EXIT;
REM JOB.BAT

SQLPLUS -S scott/tiger@ora10 @test.sql
EXIT

Schedule 'job.bat' file to run every 20 minutes; it will call SQL script and run it. Both will exit at the end of processing.

Hi Littlefoot,

Thanks for your reply. I scheduled job.bat and it still doesn't run. It just says the scheduled task failed to start. Do I need admin rights to schedule the task?

Thank you so much!

No, you don't ... as far as I can tell.

However, job will not run if you don't enter a correct password during the scheduling process. Did you miss that one? Or, is it a laptop that you use? Did you leave the "don't run a scheduled task if running on batteries" (something like that) checked?

Because, I have just tested scheduling this very job and it completed successfully.

No. Actually my machine was on when I scheduled the job to run. So no battery issue.

Secondly, I used the same username and password like when it asks for login to startup my machine. I dont know anyother username and passwords I use for authentication for my machine.
Thatswhy I am wondering if I will need the admin rights to do this. Thanks, Littlefoot.

Well, if you are not an administrator, make yourself one (or ask your system administrator to enable it for you) in order to test scheduling). Won't cost much, I guess.

Did you try the exact command that Littlefoot presented? Don't use sqlplusw (notice the 'W')...use sqlplus (without the w).

Once you setup the task, right-click on it and click RUN. For troubleshooting purposes, if you want to create a log of this job running, in the RUN box of the scheduled task, just add the following:

e:\test.bat > e:\test.log

(Modify the paths above to accommodate your system & privileges)
