Symptoms

README of Windows Bundle Patch has wrong description of procedure which changes WMI service to auto.
Following steps are wrong.

-------------------------------------------
< Wrong >
3.2.2 Patch installation instructions for a RAC environment
:
 4. Explicitly disable the (non-Oracle) Windows Management Instrumentation service.
           sc config Winmgmt start= disabled
:
 7. Complete the patching by running 'rootcrs.pl -patch'.
  Note:  This command includes startup of Oracle High Availability Services

         > %ORACLE_HOME%\perl\bin\perl -I%ORACLE_HOME%\perl\lib -I%ORACLE_HOME%\crs\install %ORACLE_HOME%\crs\install\rootcrs.pl -patch
:
14.  Re-enable the (non-Oracle) Windows Management Instrumentation service.

           sc config Winmgmt start= auto
-------------------------------------------

Correct procedure is that WMI service is changed to auto before executing 'rootcrs.pl -patch'.
