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).
thanks for support..
