Is there any way to backup and restore asm instance on 10g(10.2.0.1.0).I am using OS linux 5. like in 11g we have md_backup and md_restore.
The ASM Diskgroup of versions 10.2 and earlier are simple and have fewer resources and parameters, then I see no reason to perform backup of diskgroup metadata.
If your ASM Diskgroup fail. Just Recreate Diskgroup and Perform Restore with RMAN. (i.e you don't need ASM metadata backup).
