    Asm Crash ORA-29702: error occurred in Cluster Group Service operation

    718168
      We have a once instance ASM, no RAC on Aix 6.1, Oracle Version 11g R1 and we seem to be having pretty frequent crashes of the ASM instance and it also seems the server reboots but i'm not sure here whether ASM crashes because of the reboot or ASM icrashes and is then responsible for the server reboot. Please check my logs below, any comments or help will be appreciated.
