How to Find Out Oracle Clusterware Cluster Name ?

For 12c,  the SCAN is the name of the cluster , If you configure a Standard cluster, and choose a Typical install.

In an Advanced installation, The SCAN and cluster name are entered in separate fields during installation. So you can choose and give cluster name only in “Advanced installation”.

Select cluster name carefully. After installation, you can only change the cluster name by reinstalling Oracle Grid Infrastructure.
