do you not have a shared spfile on shared storage? have you checked the actual values in the other instances?

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 22.214.171.124.0. I've managed to forget most of my VMS knowledge so any help would be appreciated.
