Oracle Services


On Windows, each instance is tightly coupled to a Windows service. This windows service is named OracleService<SID>.
This Windows service is created, deleted, started and stopped with oradim.

Management Agent Services


The Oracle<agent_home>Service is required for a RAC environment or ASM.
So, this service can be set to manaul and be ignored if neither RAC nor ASM is used.
It appears that the default name for this service is OracleCSService.
The executable is: %ORACLE_HOME%\bin\ocssd.exe.


The executable is: %ORACLE_HOME%\BIN\ENCSVC.EXE.
