Receiving “ORA-01078: failure in processing system parameters” error while starting database on 11gR2 ASM non-RAC environment

Receiving below error while starting up the database in 11gR2 ASM non-RAC environment:

“ORA-01078: failure in processing system parameters
ORA-01565: error in identifying file ‘+DATA/orcl/spfileorcl.ora’
ORA-17503: ksfdopn:2 Failed to open file +DATA/orcl/spfileorcl.ora
ORA-29701: unable to connect to Cluster Synchronization Service”

To fix this issue, I started the ASM instance and database using SRVCTL command:

$ srvctl start asm
$ srvctl start database -d databasename


$ srvctl start asm
$ srvctl start database -d orcl
