What sort of "support" are you looking for?



Overview of Automatic Storage Management (ASM)

Automatic Storage Management (ASM) simplifies administration of Oracle
related files by allowing the administrator to reference disk groups
rather than individual disks and files, which are managed by ASM. The ASM
functionality is an extention of the Oracle Managed Files (OMF)
functionality that also includes striping and mirroring to provide
balanced and secure storage. The new ASM functionality can be used in
combination with existing raw and cooked file systems, along with OMF and
manually managed files.



Given what SLES/HA actually manages, and how, it seems like this would
probably work, but I'm not an Oracle expert and won't begin to try to
tell you how to configure it.
