ohasd failed to start

Situation :

1) Two RAC nodes( racnode1/2). Deleted node racnode2 . Upgraded OS from RHEL 4  to RHEL 7 for racnode2, then tried to add node racnode2 back into cluster from racnode1.

2) export IGNORE_PREADDNODE_CHECKS=Y, Ran addnode.sh ->  orainstRoot.sh->root.sh, then got the below errors:

ohasd failed to start
Failed to start the Clusterware. Last 20 lines of the alert log follow:
