    backup voting disk in 10g RAC

    Hi DBAs,

    I just finished installing 10g.2 RAC (2 nodes) using ASM on AIX 5.3. Oracle recommends making a backup of the voting disk contents using the dd.exe utility. Can anyone tell me how this is done?

    Thanks in advance...

    dd does a physical copy.

    Do dd if=voting_disk_name of=backup_file_name

    if = input file
    of = output file
