Oh, so true let we still see a fair number of posts where the full Oracle version is not mentioned, Oracle error messages are not posted, and no explanation of what was done prior to running into the posted issue is provided. The problem exists not just here on the Oracle-L list but on metalink forum posts, on OTN, the comp.databases.oracle.* newsgroups, etc ....
I could argue that working with inadequate information is good training for young DBA's because it does not get any better on the job.

Sure, I've seen that, but with so little information, the realm of possibilities is pretty large. If your servers rebooted unexpectedly, I'd start by figuring out why. My guess is that if something rebooted them suddenly, they may have a lingering issue accessing the storage or maybe the storage array was also restarted and maybe it has issues as well.
If you have a specific error message or better problem statement than (paraphrasing) "ASM won't come up", you'd be more likely to get useful responses. When very little information is input, very little useful information is likely to come out.
