Well I am glad you are back operating now ...
The ASM syntax is a little peculiar no doubt. I am using external redundancy letting my storage arrays do the mirroring ... ( lots of varied opinions here on how to use ASM on one side and the other ). No FAILGROUPs.
You certainly need ( as far as I know ) commas between multiple disks in the straight up case ... ( like ):
CREATE DISKGROUP some_name EXTERNAL REDUNDANCY DISK '/some_path/disk1' FORCE,'/some_path/disk2' FORCE;
If you haven't already trashed it you should have something left over from the original create via dbca that would have had the syntax used the first time around by the GUI ... for whatever that's worth.
