I have a server that I need to stop the database for to run a scheduled backup every night.  In order to do this, once the database service is restarted, I will need to start up 4 Com+ Applications as well.  Is there a way to automate this?

    How do you normally start the COM apps?

    Admin tools - Component Applications - Com+ Application under My Computer - Right-Click the Com+ Application and Shut Down, then right-click it and click Start.  I've never really had to do this because the Com+ app's start automitcally with a server boot, but I want to avoid having to reboot the server every night.
