Shutdown
Hello All, I have windows server 2003 installed on my machine, which also has Oracle database installed on it. My Problem is when I shut down the machine, It takes ages ( around 30-45) minutes to shut down completely. So How can I find out actually which program/ service is causing such drastic delay in shutdown! Thanking You and Best Regards,

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

I suppose that a service hangs when your server tries to stop it. Check it on the event viewer. If you find it try to manually stop it before the shutdown process.

    This is popular when Exchange server is installed. The server is probably waiting for the DB to terminate gracefully, according to a timeout period specified in the registry. Check with Oracle to see if there is a mandatory waiting period specified in the registry.

    Try stopping the oracle services before shutting down. Then, once they are stopped, try your shutdown and see if it is faster. If so, perhaps you can automate the process of stopping those services first. As mentioned, Exchange has a similar wait issue that can be fixed by nixing those services prior to the shutdown.
