Configuring Clusterware SCAN with Cisco Ace Load Balancer (Doc ID 1665953.1)

Last updated on APRIL 29, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.2.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Need guidance on configuring the 11.2 SCAN address for a RAC cluster using Cisco ACE Load Balancer.

The documentation states the DNS entries need to be added in the conventional DNS configuration files:

      http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/install.112/e48294/typinstl.htm#CWAIX410   <--- 1.3.2 Check Network Requirements


Cisco ACE load balancers are also in use and typically handle configuration such as this i.e. round robin load balancing etc.

Is the use of GNS or DNS mandatory or can the records be held in the ACE load balancer configuration?
