Setting SCAN address as outbound IP address

user5290826 Newbie
Currently Being Moderated
Running : Oracle 11gr2 , with ASM on a 2 node cluster

The primary physical ethernet interface is setup with IPMP ... We looked into using the ifconfig usesrc option but this not compatible with IPMP.

We have a need to have all outbound IP packets leaving the "active" cluster node to be replaced with the SCAN IP address. Our need here is due to an upstream firewall that will only allow the SCAN address through. Our Application works fine when a connection is initiated from the client application, but when we have to send a message to the client app it is leaving the server with the IP address of the VIP on the IPMP interfaces.
Our application is built on weblogic, but we do not have a grid aware application.

Any idea on how this might be done ?
