Our database server is a Machine running Windows 2K Server. We make our backups stopping the Oracle Service and then copying the files to other location (and then to tape), but in order to do this, the user loged in on the server must be an administrator, and this is a problem, because the backup is made by an operator, who should not have administrator rights. Do you know if there's a way to stop Services in Win 2K with a normal user loged in ? Is there a way to run an application (Forms,C++,any other) which internally uses an administrator account and send a command to the OS to stop the oracle service ? Any help or comment will be appreciated.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You could set up a scheduled task to do the backups and use net stop to stop the service and net start to start the service. Set this up in a batch file and schedule it with the credentials of an admin or at least someone who belongs to the ora_dba group
