Hi Guys

We are running standalone version of Jira on windows servers. I want to set-up an automated reboot of jira instance every night. Can anyone please suggest me how that can be achieved?

Ugh, why? A properly configured system should just run and keep running. For years if there's no failure... oh... hang on, you're running Windows... Sorry.

Anyway, your best bet is to install Jira as a service and make sure it behaves the stop-start commands issued by the service manager. Set it to automatic start, and it will restart as the machine comes back up after reboot. The only issue I've run into with this is that you have to be certain that the database is available before the Jira service starts, or it will error and then sit there until you make it available and restart it.

Thanks Nic for your comments. Yes, we do use the stop start commands to restart Jira. I am still trying to figure out if there is a way I can schedule to invoke those commands at night.

Reg databases, it is on another server so it will always be available.

While I agree with Nic, if you need to restart regularly, use windows task scheduler (use 'sc' command inside the task scheduler to restart the service if JIRA is installed as service)

Also, if you're rebooting something every night, then you've got a severely broken system and really should be fixing that instead of rebooting.
