SEVERE: [FATAL] [INS-35423] The installer has detected that Oracle Clusterware is not running on local node.
CAUSE: You have chosen to install Oracle RAC when Oracle Clusterware stack is not running on the local node.
ACTION: Start the Oracle Clusterware stack by running the following command as the root user from the Oracle Clusterware home (Grid home) : /bin/crsctl start crs. When the Oracle Clusterware stack is running, restart the installer and continue with the Oracle RAC installation. 

 The error is thrown even when the GI Home has CRS=true Flag against the GI Home-

# cat <INVENTORY LOCATION>/ContentsXML/inventory.xml
.
<HOME_LIST>
<HOME NAME="<OraGI18Home1>" LOC="<GRID HOME>" TYPE="O" IDX="1" CRS="true"/>
<HOME NAME="<12102_HOME>" LOC="<DB HOME>" TYPE="O" IDX="2">
<NODE_LIST>
<NODE NAME="<nodename1>"/>
<NODE NAME="<nodename2>"/>
</NODE_LIST>
