1) DBCA fails to create MGMTDB because it is not finding any diskgroups.

2) The command 'kfod op=groups' does not return any diskgroups

3) ASMCMD list the diskgroups using the command "lsdg"

4) V$ASM_DISKGROUP doesn't list the mounted diskgroups, whereas V$ASM_DISKGROUP_STAT shows the diskgroups.

5) The command 'asmcmd dsget' shows the values reported for 'profile' and 'parameter' not matching:

$ asmcmd dsget
