    Sorry for late reply. Didn’t get time to reply earlier.

    In case of RAC database (10.2) you need to perform following steps

    1)Start CRS (as root)

    #crsctl start crs

    Actually if you have enabled automatic startup of resources and configured asm-instance dependency correctly, then it will start all resources automatically. Otherwise go to below steps

    2)Start Nodeapps

    $srvctl start nodeapps -n <noden>

    3)Start ASM instance

    srvctl start asm -n <noden>

    Repeat steps on other node. You can use srvctl command from any node

    4) Now start cluster database

    $srvctl start database -d <dbname>

    You can also start a single instance using following command

    srvctl start instance -d <db_name> -i <inst_name>
