    The purpose of "md_backup/md_restore" of 11.1 and onwards is backup/restore only the metadata of a diskgroup. There is no backup/restore ASM Instance, also there is no Backup/Restore Data of ASM Diskgroup.

    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).
