We're migrating our disks from the current San arrray to a new San array.
In do this, the path names for the ocr, voting disks, and asm disks will change.
The configuration is 2-node Rac cluster. (solaris 10,,asm, oracle throughout)

I'm looking at different ways to migrate the OCR, and voting disks to the new
array. I found a note on MOS which outlines the steps, that are needed to
recreate the ocr/voting disks, that have accidentally been deleted. I am hoping
to find another solution.

We have 2 ocr, and 3 voting disks. I was thinking of removing 1 of each
from the current array, and then recreating them on the new array. This would be
done before the migration. I'm not crazy about this solution either.

I've also looked at doing an export/import of the OCR after the san is migrated,
but I don't think that will work.

For the ASM devices, I have been told that there is nothing to do. ASM will handle
this in its own way, and migrate successfully. Can anyone verify this ?

Has anyone done a san migration with RAC ? Any suggestions on how to do this ?

Thanks for your time.

    I have done this on as Paul suggested.

    We had the 2 arrays available on the host. I added an ocr copy then dropped the one to the old array and so on...

    the following is the note I used for this:

    OCR / Vote disk Maintenance Operations: (ADD/REMOVE/REPLACE/MOVE) [ID 428681.1]

    The examples they have is from raw to block device but the process is the same from one diskgroup to another.

    If you can attach both new and old SANs to the same cluster then you could add OCR and voting disk on the new SAN and remove from the old?

    I have migrated single instance databases from old to new SAN on ASM using RMAN and the "backup as copy" method which was simple and had minimal downtime. Just need to manually sort out the move of the controlfiles, redo logs, Archivelogs etc but that can be sorted out
