> Oracle says SCAN is optional unless you use policy-managed database in 11gR2. But it actually becomes mandatory at the time of installation, and then it can be optional afterward. Isn't that awkward?

I was in a presentation at OpenWorld about new RAC features in 11gR2, and the presenter (whose name I cannot recall) emphasized that SCAN is not optional, it is mandatory. The optional part is the GNS where RAC manages the server names for you and the DNS forwards the resolving to the GNS.
