Cannot start resource ‘ora.ctssd’ as it is already in the INTERMEDIATE state on server

This CRS-2800 error is related to the database resource is in INTERMEDIATE state with Restricted Access.

 

$ crsctl stat res ora.<database>.db -t

Get the database resource out of “INTERMEDIATE” state, in this case, disable restricted access:

 

1)Disable the restricted session on all the DB instances:

 

SQL> alter system disable restricted session;

2)Start the service

 

$ srvctl start service -s <service> -d <database>

3)Check the service status

 

$ srvctl status service -s <service> -d <database>
