IS restarting the servers such as domino, F&P, Proxy,or for that matter all the servers in the datacentre once in a week a good practice ? If yes what are the benefits of restarting the servers once in a way. In case of a db server running oracle 9, is there any harm to the databse in such regular weekly restarts ?

When your servers are based on windows as OS the answer is yes (paticularly for domino servers). Our domino servers used up memory handles of which windows supplied only a few, so after a couple of days without reboot the server crashed anyway. Proxy servers on the other hand should be relativ stable without rebooting regularly.

Rebooting / restarting database servers is often a good idea, as often a restart of the database service cleans up unused indexes etc.
