How to manually create the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g OPMN Process Manager MS Windows Service?

Important Notes:

1. In normal circumstances it should be not be necessary to follow these steps because the MS Windows Process Manager Service is created for you at ASInstance creation time by the Installer / Configuration Wizard. However, if, for some reason, the Service has been deleted, corrupted and/or changed the steps given below should help you resolve the situation. If there are further customizations, or other product specific requirements, these are out of scope from OPMN Support.

2. Even if the Process Manager window service does not exist, OPMN works fine. The opmnctl status / startall / stopall commands all work fine. The only caveat is you can not log off the Windows Session where you have started opmn, otherwise the opmn process is stopped.

3. It is important to note: These are otherwise undocumented steps, and do not consider different Installation types like Forms & Reports, Business Intelligence, etc. Full testing of these steps has not been done. If these steps fail, it will be required to have a new installation to create all necessary parameters during ASInstance creation time by the Installer / Configuration Wizard.
