John: Take a look at your ora_root:[dbs]SID_<instance_name>.properties file. Tell me what's in there.

I almost hate to ask, but here goes...
Adding a second instance to VMS RAC. It was not previously configured as RAC. After issueing the startup command, the error returned is "ORA-00061: another instance has a different DML_LOCKS setting". This is not true, the init file for each instance has the exact same setting. The files are copies of each other with the proper entries changed. OpenVMS V7.3-2 and Oracle 184.108.40.206.0. I've managed to forget most of my VMS knowledge so any help would be appreciated.
