Using external redundancy DG for voting files

Hi all,

I'm trying to convince a colleague of mine that having a single voting file/disk on an external redundancy ASM disk group is a bad idea since a logical corruption would mean a painful outage and recovery operation. There is also the possibility that during certain cluster failures there would always be only a single available cluster node since there is only a single voting disk (so no majority voting to decide on the active cluster members). I would greatly appreciate some feedback on further arguments as well as the validity of mine own using the term 'logical' corruption and the voting to decide on the active cluster members.

I appreciate your time. Thanks in advance!
