Upgrade from Oracle Database 11.2.0.1 to 11.2.0.3

Hi,
I have Oracle ASM 11.2.0.1, Oracle RAC 11.2.0.1 and Oracle Database 11.2.0.1. I have two nodes.
I would upgrade Oracle Database to 11.2.0.3 mantaining the 11.2.0.1 version for ASM and RAC.
Is it possible?
Where can I get a guide?
Thanks

    No. It's not possible.

    +"mantaining the 11.2.0.1 version for ASM and RAC"+
    You mean +"mantaining the 11.2.0.1 version for ASM and Clusterware"+ , because RAC is the Software of Oracle Database in Clustered env. (i.e Oracle Database Software over Cluster is called RAC)

    The release of Oracle Clusterware that you use must be equal to or higher than the Oracle ASM and Oracle RAC versions that are running in the cluster. You cannot install a version of Oracle RAC that was released after the version of Oracle Clusterware that you run on the cluster.

    See detail Oracle Clusterware Version Compatibility:
    http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/rac.112/e16794/intro.htm

    Tell me if I understand correctly.

    I have Oracle Clusterware, Oracle ASM and Oracle Database 11.2.0.1 at the moment.
    If I want to upgrade to Oracle Database 11.2.0.3 (my database is not single instance but it is composed by two nodes) I should upgrade the Clusterware to 11.2.0.3.
    But I should upgrade ASM to 11.2.0.3 too.

    Do I understand correctly what it is written in the document you highlighted?

    Thanks.

    Yes..You understood correctly.
    First you must upgrade CRS/ASM to 11.2.0.3, then you should upgrade RAC Database to 11.2.0.3

    CRS/ASM 11.2.0.3 support RAC/Single Database version 11.1.0.7 until 11.2.0.3

    CRS/ASM 11.2.0.1 does not support RAC/Single Database 11.2.0.2 or above.
