There was no response for a long time during copying file from filesystem to ASM diskgroup.

For Example:

Copy from the diskgroup to the file system will be successful.
[grid@nodeXvm01 ~]$ asmcmd cp
<diskgroup_name>/<db_unique_name>/datafile/<datafileXXXX>.506.1072871763 /tmp/t1
copying +<diskgroup_name>/<db_unique_name>/datafile/<datafileXXXX>.506.1072871763 -> /tmp/t1
[grid@nodeXvm01 ~]$

Copy from the file system to the diskgroup will be hung.
[grid@nodeXvm01 ~]$ asmcmd cp  /tmp/t1  +<diskgroup_name>/<db_unique_name>/datafile/t1
copying /tmp/t1 -> +<diskgroup_name>/<db_unique_name>/datafile/t1   <<<<<<<<<<< Hung
