The spfile parameter is not set when the ASM instance is started. Even if we change the parameters using spcopy command , for example: we change a parameter (e.g. memory_target=1G) but the instance is started with 272MB. In other words +ASM1 and +ASM2 instances in 2 nodes is not reading spfile showed in spget command.

Spfile parameter is unset and we cannot change.

ORA-32001: write to SPFILE requested but no SPFILE is in use
