I'd posted previously about
srvctl, didn't realize it was only used if a Grid Infrastructure was installed, which in my case, is not.
Anyways, I have Oracle 12c Database installed on my Windows 8.1 pro personal machine, used for testing purposes (school work actually). As such, I don't want it to be up every time I log into my PC. And being forced to run
SQL shutdown every time I've logged in is a hassle (I realize I could write a batch script but that's a last resort).
I can't figure out what service is starting an Oracle Instance at boot. Does anyone know of what does? I've been combing through the Oracle Doc's and can't seem to find out what it is.
TL;DR: Just trying to stop my Oracle Database from initializing on a PC boot.
