Symptoms

After restarting clusterware on node 1, ora.crsd resource is not starting.

The crsd.log on the node shows below messages repeatedly for each database resource:

2017-08-02 18:46:18.631721 : AGFW:2231269120: {1:32872:2} Creating the resource: ora.orcl.db 1 1

The key error above is  "failed to validate group name" followed by the name of the group.

Shortly after above errors, crsd.bin aborts with the following message:

...
