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:   <--- 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?
