Configure Task Scheduller under windows 2003 server to reestart SQL Server Express every morning

Hello,

I need guidance on how to setup a task schedulled to run every morning and reset my instance of sql server express.

As you might as why, here is the answer:

I run a dedicated server at godaddy and every night when they run the Netbackup utility from Veritas, if anybody tries to acess a website during the backup process, sql server will disconnect the website's database and I have to reestart sql server express to get them running again.

I already spoke to tech support and they said theres nothing they can do about it and suggested that I create an application to put the websites under maintenance mode during the backup process (every night) or create a schedulled task to reestart the server every morning, after the backup takes place.

I think the second choice is the best and I need guidance for that.

Thanks!

Go to services.msc and find the exact names as it displays over there and replace it if required in the below script.

net stop MSSQLSERVER
net start MSSQLSERVER

Have the above piece of code in a *.bat file and use Windows Task scheduler to run it at scheduled intervals..
