Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


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.
