The Start_failed resource state indicates that a Start or Prenet_start method failed or timed out on a resource, but its resource group came online anyway. The resource group comes online even though the resource has been placed in a faulted state and might not be providing service. This state can occur if the resource's Failover_mode property is set to None or to another value that prevents the failover of the resource group.
Unlike the Stop_failed resource state, the Start_failed resource state does not prevent you or the Oracle Solaris Cluster software from performing actions on the resource group. You need only to execute a command that restarts the resource.
Use any one of the following procedures to clear this condition.
