ASM switching storage

I have one question about switching external storage for Oracle RDBMS. Oracle uses ASM and disk devices are masked using symbolic links.

We want to change storage - we bought a new storage arry . For moving Oracle I was considering two options for ASM data migration:

  • Using ASM, add new disks and drop the old one and let ASM rebalance data.
  • To copy data using storage tools and then just change symbolic links locations.

Would the second method work?
