Re: prevent database down

Though I'm not particularly a windoze fan, the suggestions to move to unix will not fix the problems you are having.

We have in our shop some very busy databases running on W2K, two of them are 500 gig. They don't give me much trouble.

The busiest is only ~10 gig, but is is *very* busy. It stays up for months at a time, and in fact only comes down for maintenance and/or patches.

Though I much prefer working in Unix, W2k is entirely suitable for running Oracle reliably ( definitions of 'reliably' may vary :)

Have you checked your alert log? Please post the lines that occurred when the database last crashed.

Have you checked the application event viewer?
