    Hello ,

    You have startsap and stopsap scripts in the kernel for this. But how to do it automatically without manual intervention I am not very sure.

    very simple...

    create 2 batch files with the startsap and stopsap commands.

    you can execute the stopsap.bat via windows scheduler 10 minutes before the server restart. To start the system automatically after restart just add the startsap.bat to Startup folder in windows.

      Just understand that there are cases where you do not want the SAP system to start automatically after a reboot. For example, in the case of a system crash where a problem needs to be identified and corrected before the SAP system is restarted.

      I would also question the need to reboot your system once a week in the first place. You should be able tune and stablize the system enough so shutdowns and reboots aren't necessary at all.

      Best Regards,

    Hi Fabrizio,

    why do you want to reboot your server every sunday?????

    If you reboot your SAP this often, you'll have performance problems every Monday. All

    of your SAP internal Buffers must be filled again after an reboot. If your DB is on the

    same Host, also your DB Buffer is empty.

    If this is an productive System, i highly recommend you that you not reboot your SAP System this often....

    (By side, thats the difference between an *nix and an Windows System.).

    What is the reason for doing that?


    Regards Manuel

      It has nothing to do with "stable"... Windows Servers ARE stable... But 6 Months..

      No Security Updates 6 Months?

      We have *nix Server with over 700 Days uptime.

      And they are fully patched (except Kernel fixes).

      Regards Manuel.
