If the node won't boot, try booting it into single user mode and disabling clusterware from starting if you think clusterware is what's not allowing it to boot completely.

The failed attempts reported on the console that the listener nodeapp could not start; looking into network configuration, I noticed vip IP address for the failing listener was not allocated on that node but on its partner; please, what log files do you suggest for errors?
