Goal

Oracle Clusterware services in a Windows RAC environment should be allowed to start automatically, ideally, with the help of the Oracle Process Manager Service (OPMD).  OPMD is installed automatically in versions 10.2.0.4 and 11.1.0.6 and 11.1.0.7 and it can be manually configured in earlier patchset versions - reference: Metalink <Note 358156.1> for further details. 

Following is an outline of how to start Oracle Clusterware services manually if it should become necessary to do so.
