Hi Oracle Experts,

Urgent help needed on a weird issue!! I am trying to up the database starting with the listeners. Unfortunately, the error below is being displayed despite listener.ora appearing to be correct:

Check /external1/oracle/testora/8.0.6/network/log/test.log
TNS_ADMIN set?

Repeating what you posted is not answering my questions.

Hi Michel,

Thanks for your input. The quote from the previous post was, as requested, from /external1/oracle/testora/8.0.6/network/log/test.log. Sorry for having been unclear.

I am new to admin tasks actually. Can you kindly advise where to set TNS_ADMIN?

Cheers,
Pravish

>Listener wouldn't start though correctly defined in LISTENER.ORA
If this were really true, then no error would be generated.
You should reset the assumption.
When did this last work?
What changed?

Your listener.ora is NOT in the default directory so you have to precise in which directory Oracle has to find it:
export TNS_ADMIN=/external1/oracle/testdb/9.2.0/network/admin/TEST_test
then
lsnrctl start TEST

Regards
Michel

Thanks for the useful input.

The path was specified before starting the listener and, apparently, it completed successfully as can be seen below:

start TEST

>>But still cannot up the DB

I think we are discussion about listener only not your database.

Actually what's the problem? Post your alert log.

This is a different question, create a new topic and you have to show us what you did.
