Hi,

I have install oracle 11g r2 rac with asm in two nodes. OS is hp-Unix.
For creating spfile in asm:
Rac was up and running, today I have create pfile from memory and then create spfile from pfile in +DATA location.
After reboot rac server asm is not starting.

Connected to an idle instance.
SQL> startup
ORA-01078: failure in processing system parameters
ORA-29701: unable to connect to Cluster Synchronization Service
SQL>

another way: ./asmcmd

grid@dcpdb1 [u01/app/11.2.0/grid/bin]# ./asmcmd
Connected to an idle instance.
ASMCMD> startup

## ./asmca
grid@dcpdb1 [u01/app/11.2.0/grid/bin]# ./asmca
Unable to get the local node, Possibly Oracle Grid Infrastructure might be down
grid@dcpdb1 [u01/app/11.2.0/grid/bin]#

grid@dcpdb1 [u01/app/11.2.0/grid/bin]# ./crs_stat -t
CRS-0184: Cannot communicate with the CRS daemon.

How can I start asm instance. pls help.

Thanks
