Remote Listeners for an Oracle RAC Database

A remote listener is a listener residing on one computer that redirects connections to a database instance on another computer. For example, SCAN listeners are remote listeners.


Do not modify the REMOTE_REGISTRATION_ADDRESS parameter for your Oracle RAC deployment. The REMOTE_REGISTRATION_ADDRESS parameter is set by default to protect against TNS poisoning. Refer to Oracle Database Net Services Reference for more information about REMOTE_REGISTRATION_ADDRESS parameter.

In Oracle RAC environments, Oracle recommends that you let the Oracle Agent manage the Oracle listeners for the databases.
