Already another rac database is running successfully on this machine through ASM. We are trying to use the same ASM instance for this single instance database. When I tried using dbca it was not reading the current ASM instance. Instead it was trying to create new instance. Thats y I was forced to create new DB manually.

Kindly help in resolving this issue.

Thanks
