If the application software is not placed on the same server as the database, 
the vendor has 0 to say about the database platform.

Now, back to your question  :-)

What do you mean about "without having direct access to the windows server".
Do you mean you can't use os scripts, or that it must be scheduled from within

Subject: Oracle On Windows Question

   Here are some particulars:
                Windows 2008 Server
   We normally don't run Oracle on Windows, but one vendor insists that the 
Oracle database must be on windows.  In our Unix / Linux environment, we 
monitor many things, including free physical disk space.  Without having direct 
access to the Windows server, is there anything within Oracle that can return 
the disk size and space used?

Thank you,
