In a Flex ASM environment, Grid Infrastructure (GI) startup fails when GI is running on one or more of other nodes,
and "crsctl stat res -t -init" output shows that all resources except ora.crsd is up.
The ora.crsd shows either offline or intermediate state.

The cluster alert.log shows the following error:
