If the application software is not placed on the same server as the database, the vendor has 0 to say about the database platform.

Now, back to your question :-)

What do you mean about "without having direct access to the windows server". Do you mean you can't use os scripts, or that it must be scheduled from within oracle?

Subject: Oracle On Windows Question


   Here are some particulars:

                Windows 2008 Server

   We normally don't run Oracle on Windows, but one vendor insists that the Oracle database must be on windows. In our Unix / Linux environment, we monitor many things, including free physical disk space. Without having direct access to the Windows server, is there anything within Oracle that can return the disk size and space used?

Thank you,
