Hi, I just installed a driver on my Linux system that made it possible for me to connect the Internet. Unfortunately, after that, when I tried to start the listener of my DB server using the "lsnrclt start", I got the following error message:

LSNRCTL for Linux: Version 10.2.0.1.0 - Production on 27-OCT-2008 21:13:16

Copyright (c) 1991, 2005, Oracle. All rights reserved.

Starting /u01/app/oracle/product/10.1.0/Db_1/bin/tnslsnr: please wait...

TNSLSNR for Linux: Version 10.2.0.1.0 - Production
Log messages written to /u01/app/oracle/product/10.1.0/Db_1/network/log/listener.log
Error listening on: (ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=tcp)(HOST=)(PORT=1521))
TNS-12545: Connect failed because target host or object does not exist
TNS-12560: TNS:protocol adapter error
TNS-00515: Connect failed because target host or object does not exist



Can anyone help me solve this problem?

Did you specify a hostname/IP in your listener.ora file? What does your listener.ora file look like? Did you change your hostname and/or IP ?

Plus it appears that you have two Oracle homes on this box. Make sure you are starting the appropriate listener for the appropriate home.

Yeah, I found that the hostname has been changed. That's why the listener can't start. I changed the hostname in the /etc/hosts file and now everything's fine. Thanks anyway, Smile
