After OS(Unix) file system refresh, ASM, CRS and database won't start up

Hello, I have a pretty weird situation. Recently a backup of the filesystem on our production environment was taken. In this environment we're running a 2 node oracle rac with 2 asm instances. Sysadmins then moved that production filesystem backup and overwrote the test environment with it. Prior to overwriting the filesystem in the test environment, we were running a single node, and single instance ASM in the test region. SIDs, directories were pretty much identical to production. Has anyone ever encountered this issue?


When I do crsctl start crs I get
CRS-4640: Oracle High Availability Services is already active
CRS-4000: Command Start failed, or completed with errors.

crsctl start resource -all
CRS-4535: Cannot communicate with Cluster Ready Services
CRS-4000: Command Start failed, or completed with errors.


now when I try to issue a startup on sysasm I get

SQL> startup
ORA-01078: failure in processing system parameters
ORA-29701: unable to connect to Cluster Synchronization Service
ORA-29701: unable to connect to Cluster Synchronization Service

when I do a srvctl start asm I get
PRCR-1070 : Failed to check if resource ora.asm is registered
Cannot communicate with crsd
