I have installed oracle 11g r2 rac with asm in two nodes. OS is hp-Unix.
I have installed oracle11g Active Data Guard using Single alone Database.
Both RAc and Active Data Guard works fine.
I have not configure Data Guard Broker. N.B Rac node1 is running using spfile which is in ASM disk (+DATA/spfiledcpdb.ora) but node2 is running using pfile. Question: how to open node 2 using spfile which will stay in ASM disk like node 1?

Modify your PFILE to specify only IFILE='location_of_spfile'
use STARTUP PFILE='location_of_spfile'
Ensure that the spfile does have the 2nd instance specific parameters defined correctly.
