Cluster discovery fails to discover Oracle Scan listener endpoints.
This can result in issues with listener registration and JDBC connectivity issues when the SCAN listener has no default 1521 endpoint.

A known bug results in SCAN endpoint discovery failing in Oracle cCusterware 19c and above. This is due to a change in the output format of the "srvctl config scan_listener" command.
If no scan listener endpoints are discovered during cluster discovery, the scan address with port 1521 will be used. If the scan listener is using this address then vdb snapshots should be successful, however if the scan listener is using a non-default port, the listener registration will fail and the engine will be unable to connect to the VDB via JDBC.
To work around this issue, the cluster can have a manual scan listener added using the CLI:
engine_name> /environment/oracle/listener engine_name environment oracle listener> create engine_name environment oracle listener create *> set type=OracleScanListener engine_name environment oracle listener create *> set name=<listener name> engine_name environment oracle listener create *> set environment=<cluster environment> engine_name environment oracle listener create *> set protocolAddresses="(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=tcp)(HOST=<hostname or IP>)(PORT=<port#>))" engine_name environment oracle listener create *> commit
After provisioning, the VDB should be available, however snapshots will fail. After connecting to the VDB via sqlplus, you can verify which remote listener the engine has used
SQL>show parameter remote_listener NAME TYPE VALUE ------------------------------------ ----------- ------------------------------ remote_listener string test1-scan.delphix.com:1521
If this does not match the endpoints returned from srvctl, then it is likely the environment is experiencing this issue.
