Goal

The goal of this document is to provide a step by step approach to re-install Oracle 11gR2 Grid Infrastructure (for environments where Oracle Clusterware files are stored in ASM) without affecting the RDBMS Installations and configured databases.

Note:  If your Oracle Cluster Registry (OCR) and Voting disk (VD) files are contained in the same ASM diskgroup as your data, please be EXTREMELY careful when executing these steps to avoid potential data loss.
