Symptoms

In 11gR2 Grid Infrastructure environment where application VIP is added by "appvipcfg create -network ..", after public network failure(disable network adapter, pull network cables etc), node VIP and application VIP do not fail over to other node causing client connection failure, however, SCAN VIP does fail over to other node.
