Created services using 'srvctl' utility with an expectation that services would failover to the surviving node when one of instance crashes or is down. During our test, service failover is not happening, for example, if instance 1 is down after abort, services associated with that instance go offline without automatically starting on the other node. This event causes connection errors on the application side as service is offline. Have to manually start services and everything works fine.

Command "crscrtl stat resource -t" will show service resource status OFFLINE

Cluster logs "crsd/oraagent"  will show state changed from: ONLINE to: PLANNED_OFFLINE
