New Oracle Database Installed, Needs to be manually started at reboot

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I installed the Symantec-provided Oracle 11G 64 bit software for Windows and configured it using the provided installation PDF doc.  Everything seemed to go fine other than there being an extra service called "CLRExtProc"  listed that was not mentioned in the document with a status of UNKNOWN:

The documentation only shows there being output from "protect."

Documentation example shows:

Services Summary...
Service "protect" has 1 instance(s).
  Instance "protect", status READY, has 1 handler(s) for this service...
    Handler(s):
      "DEDICATED" established:0 refused:0 state:ready
         LOCAL SERVER
The command completed successfully

Actual output shows:

Services Summary...
Service "CLRExtProc" has 1 instance(s).
  Instance "CLRExtProc", status UNKNOWN, has 1 handler(s) for this service...
    Handler(s):
      "DEDICATED" established:0 refused:0
         LOCAL SERVER
Service "protect" has 1 instance(s).
  Instance "protect", status READY, has 1 handler(s) for this service...
    Handler(s):
      "DEDICATED" established:0 refused:0 state:ready
         LOCAL SERVER
The command completed successfully
 

C:\Windows\system32> 

Before moving to the next step of installing the Enforce server, I decided to try rebooting the server.  I noticed that none of the Oracle services start after the server is rebooted even though the Startup type is set to Automatic.

I manually went into services and started OracleServicePROTECT,OracleOraDb11g_home1TNSListener and OracleMTSRecoveryService manually and they all started up fine. 

Shouldn't these services all start without intervention?  What needs to be done?

I went ahead and installed the Enforce server and after installing it, the Oracle Database started automatically on reboot.

Net,

It was installed while logged into the server with a domain account.

It seems to have started working fine after installing the Enforce sever.

gald it is working for you, some services are interdependant on each other...
