The symptoms include (but may not be restricted to) the following:
All 5 CRS related batch jobs will start during INIT_CRS START.
(oclsvmon, oclsomon, ocssd, evmd and crsd)
No CRS services will start.
CRS_STAT -t will report:
CRS-0184: Cannot communicate with the CRS daemon.
After a period of time (approximately 5 minutes), the EVMD batch job will terminate.
The end of the evmd.log file (in ORA_ROOT:[log.<node>.evmd]) will show:
EVMD waiting for CSS to be ready err = 3
EVMD exiting, CSS unresponsive err = 3
After a period of time (approximately 10 minutes), the OCLSOMON batch job will terminate. The log file oclsomon.log (in ORA_ROOT:[log.<node>.cssd.oclsomon]) will not have been written to.
An attempt to stop CRS (INIT_CRS STOP) will leave the OCSSD (ORA_HAS_OCSSD) and CRSD (ORA_HAS_CRSDREB or ORA_HAS_CRSDRES) batch jobs running.
The crsd.log file (in ORA_ROOT:[log.<node>.crsd) will contain the following (repeated) messages:
Authorization failed, network error
clsssInitNative: connect failed, rc 2
CSS is not ready. Received status 3 from CSS. Waiting for good status ..
The cssd.log file (in ORA_ROOT:[log.<node>.cssd) will contain messages similar to the following:
Authentication OSD error, op: scls_auth_response_prepare
info: failed to make dir oracle_device:[oracle_code.crscssauthA6764293, no such file or directory
