    You mean other than having to reboot your server every 3 days or so?

    If the server already had Windows 2000 running, let' say if we want to upgrade the O/S to Windows Server 2003 with the assumption that all of the database are shutdown. The question is "do we have to reinstall the software and restore the database??? Or we can simply startup the datbase afterward"

    thanks

    Now, now Jeff!

    I run 8i and 9.2 on a mix on NT, 2K and 2003 and almost never have to reboot.

    And not one hour's unplanned downtime in 3 years as far as Oracle is concerned.

    how big is your db

    how many users are concurrently runing queries/transactions

    I have never seen (so far in 4.5 years) a shop which uses windows to run mission critical apps such as CRM, Telecom Billing systems, DWH

    Personal experience. It's a bank. Two instances on two-node Win2K cluster, Oracle FailSafe for HA purposes. Each instance has about 500-600 concurent sessions (dedicated server connections). Database size cca 300 GB each. One is transactional system, the other is DWH (kind of). Both are mission critical.

    Admittedly they are small systems. 50 or so concurrent sessions - however, as they control 80% of the business flow in the company they are mission critical.

    I agree, if I had to ensure 24x7 availability 1000 concurrent users I'd plump for something more robust, like Linux or Unix. Particularly with the state the Admins keep our network in!

    Just don't assume that every Windows shop is a flaky, fly by the seat of your pants outfit!
