CRS- 6706 : Oracle Clusterware Release Patch Level (‘xxxx’) Does Not Match Sofrware Patch Level.

We have restored OCR from backup, started CRS, and rolled back patch using opatchauto. After restarting CRS we’ve got this error:

CRS-6706: Oracle Clusterware Release Patch Level (‘xxxx’) Does Not Match Software Patch Level (‘yyyy’)

Steps to solve this issue :

1. Unlock GI home from root user:

# cd $GI_HOME
# $GI_HOME/crs/install/rootcrs.sh -unlock

2.Complete the patching setup from root user (local means it will correct OLR, not OCR):

$ $ORACLE_HOME/bin/clscfg -localpatch

3.As the root user lock the GI home:

# $ORACLE_HOME/crs/install/rootcrs.sh -lock

4. Start CRS:

# crsctl start crs -wait

Hope It Helps!
