Re: Oracle RAC cluster Resource for External Application

Oracle recommend, don't use existing VIP (listener). should use Application VIP
- All databases use one VIP (for listener)
- Each of applications separate VIP (2 applications = 2 vips)
You can define a virtual IP address for an application so users can access the application independently of the node in the cluster where the application is running. This is referred to as the application VIP. You can define multiple application VIPs, with generally one application VIP defined for each application running. The application VIP is tied to the application by making it dependent on the application resource defined by Cluster Ready Services (CRS).
