      Hi all

      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 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).
