I have done this on as Paul suggested.

We had the 2 arrays available on the host. I added an ocr copy then dropped the one to the old array and so on...

the following is the note I used for this:

OCR / Vote disk Maintenance Operations: (ADD/REMOVE/REPLACE/MOVE) [ID 428681.1]

The examples they have is from raw to block device but the process is the same from one diskgroup to another.

If you can attach both new and old SANs to the same cluster then you could add OCR and voting disk on the new SAN and remove from the old?

I have migrated single instance databases from old to new SAN on ASM using RMAN and the "backup as copy" method which was simple and had minimal downtime. Just need to manually sort out the move of the controlfiles, redo logs, Archivelogs etc but that can be sorted out
