Here are some usefull RAC articles.

To see whether RAC is running you can issue this command
srvctl -h ( -h is help )
srvctl -v
in a command window in windows or shell in unix.


If this command is missing you are not running a RAC on that server.

You can also look for rac info using SQLPLUS like this
sqlplus / as sysdba

and the issue this sql command

SELECT inst_name FROM v$active_instances;

if you see :rac...

Then you are running RAC database

Are you asking if RAC is installed or if a particular database is running in RAC?

To see if a database is running in RAC check the CLUSTER_DATABASE spfile parameter:

To see if it is installed I would run the installer and look for the clusterware pieces.
