I need to shut down my web application during maintenance process, have already gone through many ways like putting app_offline.htm in root directory , disabling the Runtime or disabling it manually via server but i what i need to implement is to do this process completely automated.

What i have is the start and end dates for shut down and flag for those days i.e whether application needed to be shut down on those dates.

Solution that i already have is to create a job in sql server agent which creates and deletes the app_offline.htm file in and from the root directory but what the problem is i need to give static path for the root directory of my application which i don not want to do.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Maybe an interesting question, but... Did you think about keeping consistency on atomic level? It would allow just to kill the service at anytime without much harm.

This is just the opinion of the OP. No need to make a big deal out of it.
