Oracle 11gR2 RAC - Grid Infrasturcture Installation

Hi,

I'm in the middle of installing the Grid infrastructure cluster for Oracle 11gR2 RAC on AIX 6.1

I had defined the public IPs, private IPs and interconnects in the DNS and hosts files. I am not using GNS because we use static IP Address, no DHCP.

during the installation, I will be asked for SCAN IP address, which I prepared and resolved by DNS, but I don't know where to configure it

The SCAN IP address is not pingable but can be lookedup and I get the reply to it

Where do I  I put it, in the Rack Switch or shall I choose different installation method??

Kindly advice

Regards,
C.

Look at this paper.  He does an excellent job of explaining how to configure each of the scan options.

Thank you John,

I had configured on SCAN for testing in the hosts file of the first node in the RAC and the installation worked, after three times of deconfiguring and deinstalling.
