How to Relocating SCAN VIP and Listeners

  • by
Sometimes, we may find the scan vip and listeners are all located at one node.

As we can see, 8 scan listeners which work for their respective network are all located at the first node. This is nothing wrong with the clusterware, all functions are all workable. But for better load balancing, we can redistribute them evenly on all nodes.

Restarting scan or vip resource object will be not helpful. You should restart scan_listener.

There left 4 scan listeners in this node, 2 for network #1 and 2 for network #2.
