Trying to increase number of scan IP addresses to 3 from 1 fails. 

The scan continues to come up only with one IP address and "scan config scan" also only shows one IP address.

$ srvctl config scan shows only 1 IP address for scan

SCAN name: scan_for_the_cluster, Network: 1
Subnet IPv4:, static
Subnet IPv6:
SCAN VIP is enabled.
SCAN VIP is individually enabled on nodes:
SCAN VIP is individually disabled on nodes:

$ srvctl status scan

SCAN VIP scan1 is enabled
SCAN VIP scan1 is running on node node2


The nslookup shows three IP addresses

nslookup scan_for_the_cluster
Server: 192.x.x.x
Address: 192.x.x.x#53
