More specifically, does anyone have any idea how I can externalize an existing Oracle
RAC ASM cluster that exists on a HDS 9980 behind a USP.  We intend to migrate everything to Local USP disk but I need to get the externalization working first.

I have shut down all host and externalized the luns but when we bring up the server - even though the OS (Solaris and Linux) can see the new luns we can not start the oracle ASM instance.  We have discovered that this seems to be because the Major and Minor numbers on the devices changed.

Any Ideas?
