I have an impression that you are trying to do something wrong because your questions are somewhat strange. At least, I don't understand where are you going. Perhaps, you could explain a bit more what you are trying to achieve
Regarading you questions: ASM sees database instances connected as clients. You can see ASM clients in the V$ASM_CLIENT view of the ASM instance.
thanks for the information. I will send the slide itself to you as I don't have the link. Is there any way I can get the information outside the database like from CSS temp file that it is maintaining this information as long as both ASM and associated database is running.
