Hi folks,

I am new to this site if I missed a thread already discussing issues similar to this, please point me to it and
in the interim accept my apologies...

when I attempt to start ora.LISTENER_SCAN1.lsnr on a two-node system, I get the following error messages and I am unable to
understand the root causes and there is no resolution in sight! I thank you to immensely if you could help as nothing seems to work.
Pls note that this a production system which I inherited and must be very careful
in what actions I'd take! As this is a private organization, when it comes to it, I will need to send private messages to protect the
entity... Here is error message:

Welcome to the forum. Please read our OraFAQ Forum Guide and please read How to use [code] tags and make your code easier to read

If this is a production system, you really should patch it up to the current release. 11.2.0.1 is very old, even 11.2.0.2 introduced many improvements.

Apart from that, the error message you quote suggests that you do not have a SCAN listener configured. What is the contents of your listener.ora file in the grid home?

Thanks for your reply and sorry about not getting back to you sooner!

Yes, I realize it's an old version and looking into upgrading.

I resolved the previous errors (crsctl start res ora.LISTENER_SCAN1.lsnr errors out) by copying listenr.ora from %GRID_HOME%/NETWORK/ADMIN into
%OH%/NETWORK/ADMIN... The catch is that the real home for listenr.ora is supposed to be %GRID_HOME%/NETWORK/ADMIN, right??


New issues:"The listener supports no services"

C:\app\11.2.0\grid\BIN>lsnrctl services listener_scan1

You are attempting to run your listeners off the wrong home. This will destroy the integrity of the Grid Infrastructure, as you have already found. Your best option may be to shutdown everything and restart the cluster. Use the crsctl utiity to stop the entire clusterware stack. Kill anything still running. Make sure everything really is shutdown. Then start the clusterware again. Do not attempt to start or stop anything with any utilities otherthan crsctl or srvctl. If your installation was done competently, all services will start up correctly.

Hi,

Thanks for your advice!

I need to explain couple of thing here:

- The ora.LISTERNER_SCAN1,2,3.lsnr will NOT start without placing listener.ora in %OH%/NETWROK/ADMIN-- I
understand the ramifications
- There is no TNS_ADMIN setting.

Questions:
- How should I get "crsctl start res ora.LISTENER_SCAN1.lsnr" to read %GRID_HOME%.../listener.ora?
- Is it not true that %OH%... is for tnsnames.ora + SQLNET.ora & %GRID_HOME%... for listener.ora?
- Would it be advisable to set TNS_ADMIN to %GIRD_HOME%/NETWORK/ADMIN?
- I'd take it that 11.2.0.1.0 release is old and buggy, right?
- Is there a UNIX-like ps -ef |grep scan?

Appreciate your help!
Will

The crsctl utility locates resources by reading information stored in the OCR, so presumably you have configured your SCAN listener incorrectly. But you have so far provided no information about how your SCAN listener is configured, in the OCR or anywhere else. The output of commands such as
srvctl config scan_listener 
crsctl status resource ora.LISTENER_SCAN1.lsnr -p
type listener.ora
and so on would help.
You could also try implementing my previous suggestions, rather than ignoring them.

Hi John,

Not at all, your recommendations are great, and I hope I did not imply that I was ignoring them. It's just that it's a production system and I am being very careful about my next steps...

I will send you the commands' outputs you mentioned above in separate reply... I, however, need to keep some company information private, how would I go about sending you a private message?

"The crsctl utility locates resources by reading information stored in the OCR"...

The following command fails: crsctl start res ora.LISTENER_SCAN.lsnr

For some reason CRS can look up listener.ora if the file exists in %OH%/NETWORK/ADMIN--

I know it's not the right place for it... Pls see the error message:
C:\app\11.2.0\grid\NETWORK\ADMIN>crsctl start res ora.LISTENER_SCAN1.lsnr
CRS-2672: Attempting to start 'ora.LISTENER_SCAN1.lsnr' on 'rac-p1'
