2.) Stop MSSQL server
3.) Stop MSSQL Agent
4.) Wait 5 minutes
5.) Start MSSQL Server
6.) Start MSSQL Agent

I don't have the exact service names at hand at the moment, but you can retrieve them in a command window using
net start
which shows all running services.
The SQL Agent should be stopped before the SQL server, it's dependent on the server
Basically it would look like this (the service names still need to be corrected); sleep.exe is part of the W2k3 ResKit (see link below):

taskkill /im "MyApp.exe"
net stop "MSSQL Agent"
net stop "MSSQL Server"
sleep 300
net stop "MSSQL Server"
net stop "MSSQL Agent"
start "" "MyApp.exe"

Could try this:
@echo off
 
net stop MSSQLServer
net stop SQLServerAgent
 
echo Waiting for 5 minutes
ping -n 301 127.0.0.1 > NUL
 
net start MSSQLServer
net start SQLServerAgent
 
start myapp.exe

Open in new window

Try something like the following:

          taskkill /IM MyApp.exe
          net stop "SQL Server"
          net stop "SQL Agent"
          ping 127.0.0.1 -n 301 -w 1000
          net start "SQL Agent"
          net start "SQL Server"
          MyApp.exe

The net stop/start commands may be slightly incorrect - if you do a "net start" from a command line, i.e. with no parameters, it'll list all the services available, including the correct names of the SQL services.

oBdA and SteveGTR - THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

I split the points because:

oBdA - Your answer is right on except for 2 parts which were supplied by SteveGTR.
1.) The net stop and start commands
2.) Sleep doesn't work in windows 2003.

So, when I combined the 2 response from you guys it worked PERFECT!!

Thanks again!

Mine also was deficient as I didn't add the taskkill statement :)

D'oh to the "net stop" instead of the "net start"; too much copy and paste, and that's when I noted that the agent should be stopped before the server.
But I mentioned how to get the sleep.exe, which is quite useful (not to mention the rest of the tools), and I prefer it to using ping.
