Guest OS Oracle Linux 4/5/6(64-bit).
I restored the VM with a commercial backup/restore agent but unable to startup the database. Please see error message below.

SQL> select status from v$instance;
select status from v$instance
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01034: ORACLE not available

Is your ASM instance started?
Is your clusterware started?

The listener must be started before starting the database,right?

yes, but your errors aren't listener errors, they are cluster and asm errors

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

tried lsnrctl status
got connecting to (ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=tcp) (HOST=)(PORT=1521)
TNS-12541: TNS: no listener
TNS-12560: TNS: protocol adapter error
TNS-00511: No listener
Linux Error: 111: Connection refused

In the tnsnames.ora and listener.ora the HOST are set to the host name.

You cannot reset anything. You need to restore Oracle from RMAN backup. Storage cloning/backups could only work with completely shut down oracle DB provided they properly include all oracle data and temporary files of same moment.

There is no data imported in my database. Now my problem is to start ASM instance.
Maybe I need to rebuild the database?

Thanks.

bash: crsctl: command not found

set your path to include your grid control home's bin directory

if your cluster ware was installed with role separated management you will need to login or su to the grid owner

also, include the "-all"

From linux->Application->System Tools->Disk Utility, I can see DATA1,DATA2, FRA1 are not mounted.
Can I mount it back?
Thanks.

you tell us,  can you?

my guess is no because your clusterware isn't running.  Or if it is, we don't know because we don't have any status info on it.

I think you should bring your system admin and dba in to help you navigate through your system setup.
