Stop the resoucre and change ownership
[root@orars4 Desktop]# srvctl  stop database -d ors4

Manually start the db with sqlplus --> worked 

--> After CRS reboot the group was change back to asmadmin

Try to change  ora.ors4.db resoure 
[root@orars4 dbs]# crsctl status resource ora.ors4.db -f
Change the primary group
[root@orars4 dbs]#  crsctl setperm resource ora.ors4.db -g oinstall
[root@orars4 dbs]# crsctl getperm  resource ora.ors4.db 
Name: ora.ors4.db

--> Did not work after GRID restart the executable still switch group ownership to asmadmnin

Modify config.c in $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/lib and relink

#define SS_DBA_GRP "asmdba"
#define SS_OPER_GRP "asmoper"
#define SS_ASM_GRP "asmadmin"

Change config.c  to
#define SS_DBA_GRP "dba"
#define SS_OPER_GRP "oper"
#define SS_ASM_GRP "oinstall"

Shutdown CRS stack and relink 
#  crsctl stop has

[oracle2@orars4 grid]$ ls -ld $ORACLE_HOME
drwxr-x---. 67 oracle2 oinstall 4096 Oct 19 11:25 /u01/app/11204/grid
[oracle2@orars4 grid]$  cd $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/lib
[oracle2@orars4 lib]$ $ORACLE_HOME/bin/relink all
As root, execute:
# $GRID_HOME/crs/install/roothas.pl -patch

Run the setasmgidwrap command as in Note.1084186.1. 
This will change the group membership of 'oracle' binary in DB home to new sysasm group.
[oracle2@orars4 lib]$ cd $GRID_HOME/bin
[oracle2@orars4 bin]$  ./setasmgidwrap o=/u01/app/oracle/product/11204/ors/bin/oracle
[oracle2@orars4 bin]$ ls -l /u01/app/oracle/product/11204/ors/bin/oracle
