+ suggested them to comment it ot make it none or all

+ after ASM came up clean

+ cluster came up but crsd.bin was is intermediate state.

+ ora.crf was failed to start

+ later suggested customer to lock the GI home, which has fixed the issue

3. For crsd.bin intermmediate issue
# <GRID_HOME>/crs/install/ -unlock
