CRS-4563: Insufficient user privileges

[grid@dbnode1 ~]$ crsctl start crs
CRS-4563: Insufficient user privileges.

CRS-4000: Command Start failed, or completed with errors.

If you are receiving this error while starting or stopping crs (Cluster Ready Service), it means that the OS user you are currently logged in with; does not have privileges to start or stop the CRS. Usually you will see this error on Linux platform where you should log in as “root” to start or stop the CRS
As you can see bellow, root can start the CRS.
[root@dbnode1 ~]# /u01/oracle/11.2.0.4/grid/bin/crsctl start crs
CRS-4123: Oracle High Availability Services has been started.
[root@sgppmbdbadm21 ~]# /u01/oracle/11.2.0.4/grid/bin/crsctl check crs
CRS-4638: Oracle High Availability Services is online
CRS-4535: Cannot communicate with Cluster Ready Services
CRS-4529: Cluster Synchronization Services is online
CRS-4533: Event Manager is online

Still communication with CRS is not working. Wait for some time a check again

[root@dbnode1 ~]# /u01/oracle/11.2.0.4/grid/bin/crsctl check crs
