I am in the middle of preparing for just such a move and have an SR with Oracle to verify the process. Unfortunately, just as with the recent thread here, I hold little hope of getting timely assistance from them. I have done a single instance move with ASM by adding the LUNS from the new array into the diskgroup, allowing it to rebalance then removing the LUNs from the old array. Worked fine. If you come up with a method to deal with OCR/voting disks, I'd be interested in comparing notes.

I moved 10.2 rac on windows to a new san with a clusterware upgrade to 11.1. in the process. I will see if I can find my notes on the subject. This is definitely the sort of exercise you want to to script and practice once or twice before you do it for real. If you cant rehearse it, make sure you make real good notes.
