Need to convert 11G NON ASM to ASM in AIX

few questions

COnversion NON ASM to ASM storage 11g + 12c

Q1 : Since it is fresh grid install, can I go for 12c grid for standalone (single instance) and can still use 11g DB to use ASM storage??

Q2 : As far as , s/w owner, oracle is required grid s/w owner  for 12c, is it also true for DB s/w owner 12c (if going forward I upgrade to 12c)

If that is the case , My intention / step is to

install 12 grid for standalone ASM instance as oracle user

install 11g on this server as oracle user

create dataguard of my primary DB to this server (and convert NON ASM files to ASM Files)

install 12c DB s/w primary DB node as oracle user 

make a switch and upgrade DB to 12c on new server (which was serving as standby and was on ASM)

Q3 : anything that is needed to chnage when orasid changes to oracle as part of this upgrade or conversion?

    Hi Neil,

    Do you think the latest posted doc helps?

    SAP on Oracle Automatic Storage Management (ASM)

    Also regarding migrate user from orasid to oracle, you can refer to SAP note

    1915317 - Migrating Software Owner to 'oracle'

    Best regards,
