oracle@RAC1 $ ls -ltra ../../devices/scsi_vhci/disk@g6000b5d0006a6a085f006f0000:a,raw
crw-r----- 1 grid asmadmin 30, 3008 Jul 4 16:39 ../../devices/scsi_vhci/disk@g6000b5d0006a0000006a085f006f0000:a,raw

2. Shutdown the database and cluster register service(CRS):

crsctl stop cluster -n RAC1

3. Change the permission of ASM disk

chmod 660 ../../devices/scsi_vhci/disk@g6000b5d0006a6a085f006f0000:a,raw

crsctl start cluster -n RAC1
