Hi Martin
I agree with this.
 With the setup we had from prior history, I created the ASM Home; sourced the ASM Home; brought down the ASM instance under the 10g home and tried to bring up the ASM instance under ASM Home. This does not work becaue there are other ASM instances (belonging to other databases). So the objective was to upgrade one database to (having its own ASM instance). In prod this is not an issue because we dont have that setup there. It is only the dev environmetns where we have this setup.

Thank you
