    Hi,
    Sure you can do it.
    You just have to create a service for the destination machine on your client, use svrmgrl / svrmgr30 and connect as sysdba to the database (i.e connect sys/change_on_install@<service_name>) and shutdown the database.
    :)
    Rotem.

    So assuming I connected with DBA priviledges and I am in SQL*PLUS and I want to shut the DB down from client machine do I have to do the following in SQL*PLUS?

    connect sys/change_on_install@) and shutdown the database.

    in able to do a remote shutdown you have to create first a password file with ORPAWD utility, enable parameter REMOTE_PASSWORD_FILE=TRUE in initSID.ora, after doing this bounce the database grant sysdba or or sysoper to a user who you want to do the remote startup/shutdowns. Let's assume you grant one of those two privilege to user system.
    This is server side.

    In client side you do

    connect system/manager@connect?string AS SYSDBA

    once connected you can do remote startup shutdowns. You can only do this from SQL PLUS if client is from Oracle 8i.

    Thanks, I understand perfectly. The REMOTE_PASSWORD_FILE=TRUE has been set the init.ora file. But I don't know wether a password file has been created or not. How do I find out if a password file has been created? If it has not being created, how do I use ORPAWD utility create it?

    I am running Oracle 8i on UNIX.

    thanks

    Arrow

    You can check to see if password file exists in the following directory:

    /ORACLE_HOME/Ora81/Database/PWDsid.ora

    Create a password file with ORAPWD utility found in ORACLE_HOME/Ora81/bin using following syntax:

    C:\> ORAPWD FILE=PWDSID.ORA PASSWORD=PASSWORD ENTRIES=MAX_USERS

    Hope this helps or for more info read Oradoc.
