Also if RAC is disabled as per the instructions below then Oracle 10.2RAC environment is supported by StarTeam 2006 (Technically, if you disable RAC then it will function as a single instance db).

After opening database you can drop the redolog groups which are for other instance. You can also drop the tablespace of other instance.
