Hi All,

Kindly guide me to execute a BATCH File through PLSQL.

    dbms_scheduler.Create_schedule(schedule_name => 'RMAN_TICKER_STARTING',
          repeat_interval => 'FREQ=DAILY;BYHOUR=9; BYMINUTE=15,30,45,59',
          => 'schedule to run daily');

    dbms_scheduler.Create_program (program_name => 'TICKER_PROGRAME',
    program_type => 'EXECUTABLE',
    program_action => 'F:\FEEDLGR\TOOLS\bfeedlgr.cmd >nul', enabled => TRUE,
    comments => 'This programe to be used to run the Rmans Ticker');

    dbms_scheduler.Create_job (job_name => 'RMAN_TICKER_JOB',
    program_name => 'TICKER_PROGRAME', schedule_name => 'RMAN_TICKER_STARTING',
    enabled => TRUE, comments => 'For Running Ticker');

It was created successfully, but when I execute, it shows the error message.
    dbms_scheduler.Run_job ('RMAN_TICKER_JOB', TRUE);

 dbms_scheduler.run_job (
Error at line 1
ORA-27370: job slave failed to launch a job of type EXECUTABLE
ORA-27300: OS system dependent operation:accessing execution agent failed with status: 2
ORA-27301: OS failure message: The system cannot find the file specified.
ORA-27302: failure occurred at: sjsec 6a
ORA-27303: additional information: The system cannot find the file specified.
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_ISCHED", line 150
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_SCHEDULER", line 441
ORA-06512: at line 2

But I have the CMD file in the location - "F:\FEEDLGR\TOOLS\bfeedlgr.cmd".

Kindly help me out.

Already asked and asked and asked, please search for the solutions and come back if none works for you.

Of course with the proof they do not work.

I'm repeating myself, I know, but it seems that you either didn't read what's already being said or you didn't understand it.

When I said "CMD", I meant "CMD.EXE" (Windows' command interpreter). It is that black window that opens when you click "C:\" black "Command Prompt" icon, which enables you to use keyboard and run certain commands, instead of utilizing your mouse device.

As far as I can tell (which doesn't have to be correct, but that's what I learnt when scheduling external programs), you need to call CMD.EXE (by default, it is - in recent MS Windows operating systems - located in C:\Windows\System32 directory). Scheduler then needs to provide arguments to it. One of them will be your F:\FEEDLGR\TOOLS\bfeedlgr.cmd file.

So, read your previous topic. Then follow link(s) Barbara and me provided to a topic I opened some time ago and read it carefully. I hope you'll manage to make it work. Best of luck!
