Unable to add instance resource to OCR using the 'srvctl' command as the oracle user, this fails with error:
PRKO-2010 : Error in adding instance to node: db01
PRKR-1008 : adding of instance ime1 on node db01 to cluster database ime failed.
PROC-5: User does not have permission to perform a cluster registry operation on this key. Authentication error [User [oracle] is not a member of group [dba]] 
The output of the 'id' command however shows that the oracle user indeed is a member of the 'dba' group:
uid=500(oracle) gid=502(oinstall) groups=501(dba),502(oinstall),503(oper)
