I have a 6 node RAC cluster on Windows. Last weekend I had a full outage to add a voting disk and when the environment came up, a database service we defined as operagds started on node #2 when it should not have started and sessions are being created on that node for that service.  

When I look at the output from crs_stat, I can see that the service is running. However, when I use it says the service is stopped. When I try to stop the service using srvctl, it says it cannot stop it because it is not running.  

$ ./srvctl.bat status service -d opera -s operagds
Service operagds is running on instance(s) opera6  

operaservice_at_L3OPERAPRODDB2 /cygdrive/d/oracle/1020/crs/bin
$ ./srvctl.bat stop service -d opera -s operagds -i opera2
PRKP-1065 : Service operagds is already stopped on instance opera2.  

Has anyone every seen this? Any ideas how to tell the cluster that the service is not running on node #2?  

TIA,   Nancy Iles
