Today, I've got an error:

$ sqlplus / as sysdba

SQL*Plus: Release - Production on Wed Nov 17 09:45:50 2010

Copyright (c) 1982, 2007, Oracle.  All rights reserved.

Connected to an idle instance.

idle> startup
ORA-01078: failure in processing system parameters
ORA-01565: error in identifying file '+DATA/DOISOAT/spfileDOISOAT.ora'
ORA-17503: ksfdopn:2 Failed to open file +DATA/DOISOAT/spfileDOISOAT.ora
ORA-15077: could not locate ASM instance serving a required diskgroup
idle> exit
SP2-0042: unknown command "exit" - rest of line ignored.
idle> exit

First time, I tried to recreate spfile from pfile, however, it - the errors continued to occur. And I searched in metalink, so, I've got ID 387217.1. I've been beging followed:

1- Check the REQUIRED_RESOURCES was listed by crs_stat -p command, wasn't it? Then, the REQUIRED_RESOURCES did not contain anything
2- Modify by Metalink comment solution:
srvctl modify instance -d <database name> -i <instance name> -s <ASM instance name>

Everything is done, however, I still did not startup database instance. The above error continued, and I force to stop all by crs_stop -all.

May you help me?

Thank you!

The message ORA-15077 says that your ASM instance is not running. The clusterware should have started it, but didn't. So you need to look in the logs to find out why it didn't start. It is probably quicker try to start it with SQL*Plus, then you will see the errors.
