Following successful Oracle Grid Infrastructure (18.104.22.168) install on a RAC on Windows 2012 cluster, ping <hostname> of each node to itself resolves to the VIP IP address instead of the public IP address. When Grid Infrastructure is stopped, ping <hostname> of each node to itself resolves to the public IP address (as expected).
