like to test database can come up on bcv copies

I have an oracle database with bcv copies (I use raidmgr for the bcv control). The bcv's are on external storage, and the bcv group is presented to a different hostgroup port on the XP. In order to bring up the database on the bcv copy I think I would need to do the following,

stop the database (this can be done instead of hot backup mode)
pairresync PVOL and SVOL concurrent data
pairsplit -rw bcvgroup
present bcv luns to hostgroup of target server on the xp. ioscan insf etc.
vgexport -s -v -m vgoracle with primary volumes
mkdir,mknod vgoracle
vgimport with SVOL (need vgchgid first?)
fsck, mount etc.
bring up database.

bring down data base
vgexport -s -v -m vgoracle
horcmtakeover.exe -g bcvgroup
pairresync -g groupname -swaps (once PAIR)
pairsplit -g bcvgroup
mkdir mknod vgoracle
vgimport -s -v -m (original pvol disks)
fsck, mount etc.
bring up database
does this sound correct? Thank you for your time.
