I'm assuming you have transferred the files across and your issue is with
the case of the file names? How have you tried to reattach - using the Add
Disk GUI? If you add the virtual box folder to your path then I would try
vboxmanage storageattach <vmname> --storagectl <controller> --medium <path
to vdi> -mtype shareable
for each disk and of course for each vm. You should get either success or a
useful error message.

Unfortunately, this is for a Linux host. I have gone through this and also
the updated article which describes OLE 6.3.
My issue is porting the "RAC Virtual Boxes" from Linux to Windows. How do
we "re-attach" the existing Linux ASM virtual disks to Windows?

After some changes to the settings, the OS did boot but CRS failed which
i think is due to the ASM disks. Checked the CRS logs, etc. and it was
indeed the "missing "voting disks.
On my Linux Host (OLE 7.1), the ASM disks were /dev/asm-disk1 and so on.
On Windows they are named ASM-disk1.vmdk and so on.
I did try to remove and add shareable storage in VirtualBox on Windows
but i think something is missing here. The shareable storage from Windows
is not being pickup by the OLE 6.3 Virtual Host.
Does anybody know how to make these "virtual ASM disks" shareable so that
Linux can see it? Is there a guide i can follow to setup a Windows based VM
for Oracle 11g RAC?
I am just hoping that I can reuse the whole setup as it is.
