Applies to:

Oracle Server - Enterprise Edition - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Some details on the environment: 2 node RAC - (+ASM1/+ASM2) - Linux x86-64

ASM1 fails to start up only when srvctl is used (does not occurs when using sqlpplus)

$ srvctl start asm -n dbdev05
PRKS-1009 : Failed to start ASM instance "+ASM1" on node "dbdev05", [PRKS-1009 : Failed to start

Removing and adding back the ASM resource into the OCR (via srvctl commands), do not help.

Also in this case, it was not possible to use the suggestion given in <> (DBCA Creates a RAC Database But at the End Shows PRPP-1001 and CRS-0215) because there is not database instances yet registered in the OCR and associated with the ASM instance.
