  That was it! Thanks a lot for your help. After applying the fix, both of our RAC instances are up now.    

  I will close my SR with Oracle Support now and tell them about the fix. :)    

  Thanks again,

Seem to be a known issue (Metalink Note 390591.1). We encountered similar issue in Linux RAC cluster and has been resoled by following this note.   


  Installing the patchset in a RAC installation on any Unix platform does not correctly update the libknlopt.a file on all nodes. The local node where the installer is run does update libknlopt.a but remote nodes do not get the updated file. This can lead to dumps or internal errors on the remote nodes if Oracle is subsequently relinked.   Solution

  There are two solutions for this problem:    
  1. Manual copy of the "libknlopt.a" library to the offending nodes :
    • ensure all instances are shut down
      • manually copy $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/lib/libknlopt.a from the local node to all remote nodes
      • relink Oracle on all nodes : make -f ioracle
  2. Install the patchset on every node using the "-local" option: On Unix: runInstaller -updateNodeList -local ORACLE_HOME=$ORACLE_HOME CLUSTER_NODES=node1,node2,... On Windows: setup.exe -updateNodeList -local ORACLE_HOME=%ORACLE_HOME% CLUSTER_NODES=node1,node2,...

  We have tried starting atlprd2 instance manually and get the error below regarding an issue with spfile which is on ASM.

  ORA-17503: ksfdopn:2 Failed to open file +SYS_DG/atlprd/spfileatlprd.ora

  By the way, instance one (atlprd1) is fine.
