Symptoms

Customer by mistake added a datafile to the SYSTEM tablespace without a + sign, command went through and datafile shows only on one node under $ORACLE_HOME/dbs default location. Since datafile is not showing on the other node, we get messages ORA-01157: cannot identify/lock data file
Need to move SYSTEM datafile from filesystem to the ASM diskgroup.
