ohasd start throws "Unable to instantiate %CRS_LIMIT_OPENFILE% "

"crsctl ctop has" and "crsctl start has" does not show any issues. When we tried to start with "/etc/init.d/ohasd start" or the system restart then we had below message:

# /etc/init.d/ohasd start
/etc/init.d/ohasd: line 168: ulimit: %CRS_LIMIT_OPENFILE%: invalid number
Starting ohasd:
CRS-4123: Oracle High Availability Services has been started.

But the services and everything seems to be fine except this error message at startup
