You have typo in your listener.ora file,
(SIF_DESC =
you must be more careful when editing files by hand, and you must get into the habit of checking things when you read them, or you will never get anywhere in database administration.

I do not think that your database instance is registered correctly with the listener. THe static registration would show as status UNKNOWN. Better delete and re-create the listener.ora file again, perhaps there is some invisible junk in it.

The instance may be down, mounted but not opened, or in restricted session mode.
Add "(UR=A)" to your connect string in TNSNAMES.ORA and try to connect again.

Dear John / Frank,

I tried to re-register after deleting the listener file but getting the same error. This thing i had tried several times before posting it here. Then at last I tried to put static listener, all went fail. I added (UR=A) in my tnsname file, when showed "blocked", which was pasted on the above. None of the theses helped me out.

Regards,
Ashish Kumar Mahanta

Come on, man. All you saying is "it doesn't work" without showing what the "it" is.
WHat is your listener.ora file? What does
lsnrctl status
show you?

Ashish, I told you a long time ago that you need to add a static entry in your listener.ora file. You have not done this. The network configuration necessary for Data Guard is clearly documented, you know. just do what the doc says.

Now you appear to have the instance registered correctly. You have not however attempted to connect.

Why did you add that entry for the extproc process? I am surprised that it has not caused a problem, and it may yet do so. Get rid of it. Just follow the documented procedures.

Dear John,

I had tried it on windows server and it gone though with unknown status instead of blocking after adding static listener into it.

Here, in linux, I tired to re-create listener but situation is same. services status is shows as blocked.

This is the information which I gathered.

Ashish Kumar Mahanta

Dear John,

Today, I deleted the listener & tns file and recreated it again. And status got changed from blocked to unknown and got connected.
Same thing was done before but this time gone though. Below is the details.

Thanks to all.
