Symptoms

Fast Connection Failover (FCF) does not support planned outages like a service relocation. It is designed to work for unplanned outages, where a RAC service is preferred on all the nodes in the cluster and one of the nodes goes down unexpectedly.  When a planned outage like a service relocation is done from one node to the other,  FCF does not work as expected and the result is unpredictable.
