During the Grid Infrastructure installation, the (default) node VIP listener is always created referencing the public network.

However, some systems may be attached to more than 1 public network, so there may be a need to create a second listener for this second public network.

The purpose of this note is to explain how to add/create/configure a second listener on a second network in an 11.2 Grid Infrastructure environment.

This note does not apply to the binding of two public network interfaces for failover purposes, like IPMP or bonding etc.
