I'm on my cell so I can't verify this but does srvctl have a modify asm command? Would that let you define a new home? You will also need to copy the init files over for asm as well?

If you have to drop and add, you should also add the dependencies for the instances to having asm start first before they can come up. Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry

Subject: How to Move ASM Home

I have inherited a cluster that has the ASM home and db home in the same oracle home. I plan to move ASM to a new home and upgrade to from, on linux 64. I think the process is just do the install, shut down the db's, shut down asm, redirect asm to the new binaries, and run srvctl drop asm/srvctl add asm. Does anyone have a complete set of steps or documentation for this process?
