When starting a database with:
srvctl start database -d test
the errors are returned:
PRKP-1001 : Error starting instance test1 on node node1
CRS-0215: Could not start resource ora.node1.test1.inst.
Checking imon_test.log in $ORACLE_HOME/log/node1/racg shows that startup has failed with 'ORA-29760: instance_number parameter not specified'. The same is reported on both nodes.
