    How to customize location of OCR and voting disks.

    DBA

      Hi,

       

      Today i installed first time  RAC(11gR2) on HP UX 11-31 with ASM. Customer would like to place OCR and voting disks in a specific disk group.  Today while installing, i could not find any option to specify location for OCR and voting disk. Hence I continued with default location and completed the installation successfully. Now my question is

       

       

      1) Is there any Way to change now?

       

      2) I have one more installation tomorrow, Is there any way to specify location before starting the installation itself. Can any body tell me the way for this?

       

       

      In parallel, i am checking in net as well...

       

      Thanks in-advance..

       

      Regards

      DBA...
