ora.node12.ons                                ONLINE     ONLINE on node12                                ONLINE     ONLINE on node12

Try "srvctl stop nodeapps -n node12" on node11, it errors out with CRS-216
$ srvctl stop nodeapps -n node12
CRS-0216: Could not stop resource 'ora.node12.LISTENER_NODE12.lsnr'.
CRS-0216: Could not stop resource 'ora.node12.ons'.
CRS-0216: Could not stop resource ''.
CRS-0216: Could not stop resource 'ora.node12.gsd'.

Try "srvctl stop nodeapps -n node12" on node 12, it succeeds.
$ srvctl stop nodeapps -n node12

Then try "srvctl start nodeapps -n node12" on node 11, it starts VIP for node12 on node 11, but gets CRS-215 for other resources:
$ srvctl start nodeapps -n node12
CRS-0215: Could not start resource 'ora.onde12.gsd'.
CRS-0215: Could not start resource 'ora.node12.ons'.
CRS-0215: Could not start resource 'ora.node12.LISTENER_NODE12.lsnr'.

Try "srvctl start nodeapps -n node12" on node 12, it starts ons and gsd, but could not start listener due to VIP is ONLINE on node11

$ srvctl start nodeapps -n node12
CRS-0215: Could not start resource 'ora.node12.LISTENER_NODE12.lsnr'.
