Hello !

I´m working with Oracle 9.2.0 / HP-UX and I need to configure two different listeners for the same server using different IP address.

How could I do this ?

Regards,

Márcio.

Here is a quick LISTENER.ORA template that defines two listeners. If you need more info, see the Oracle Net Manuals:

LISTENER1=
  (DESCRIPTION=
    (ADDRESS_LIST=
      (ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=tcp)(HOST=us.acme.com)(PORT=1521))))

SID_LIST_LISTENER1=
  (SID_LIST=
    (SID_DESC=
      (GLOBAL_DBNAME=sales.us.acme.com)
      (ORACLE_HOME=/app/oracle/product/10.1.0)
      (SID_NAME=sales)))

LISTENER2=
  (DESCRIPTION=
    (ADDRESS_LIST=
      (ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=tcp)(HOST=us.acme.com)(PORT=1522))))

SID_LIST_LISTENER2=
  (SID_LIST=
    (SID_DESC=
      (GLOBAL_DBNAME=crm.us.acme.com)
      (ORACLE_HOME=/app/oracle/product/10.1.0)
      (SID_NAME=crm)))


To start the above listeners:
$ lsnrctl start listener1
$ lsnrctl start listener2


Best regards.

Hi Frank !

Thank you for your help...

One more question:

Is it possible to put your exemple in different files. I mean, for exemple, the listener1 in a f1.ora file and the listener2 in a f2.ora file ?

I so, how could I do this ?

Best regards,

Márcio.

Hi Marcio,

Yes, it is possible to have two listener.ora files. To do this you must set the TNS_ADMIN parameter. I do this very thing because of the way that our failover is setup. Multiple listener.ora files each in a different directory. Upon startup I set the TNS_ADMIN parameter to the directory containing the listener.ora file for the listener that is starting.

Hi guys,

I've another question :

Is it possible to bind 2 listeners on 2 different IPs on the server? for example LISTENER1 on xxx.xxx.xxx.1 IP and LISTENER2 on xxx.xxx.xxx.2? ( I need this because I have Applications that work with different IP range)

Dear Michel,

I have 2 network Interfaces but when I try to create second listener using netca utility, there isn't any section to introduce intended IP to listener. how can I do it?

Wee

Use Notepad/vi and modify listener.ora to put IP and not name in HOST parameter.

While configuring 2 listener is possible, it is NOT preferred.
A single listener can listen on multiple hostname/IP# when properly configured.

Both Can be Used

LISTENER =
(DESCRIPTION_LIST =
(DESCRIPTION = (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = au.us)(PORT = 2523)))
(DESCRIPTION = (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = au.us)(PORT = 2523)))
(DESCRIPTION = (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = au.us)(PORT = 1521)))
(DESCRIPTION = (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = au.us)(PORT = 1521))
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = IPC)(KEY = EXTPROC0))
)
)


SID_LIST_LISTENER =
(SID_LIST =
(SID_DESC =
(SID_NAME = PLSExtProc) (ORACLE_HOME = /u00/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/Db_1) (PROGRAM = extproc))
(SID_DESC = (ORACLE_HOME = /u00/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/Db_1) (SID_NAME = DB1))
(SID_DESC = (ORACLE_HOME = /u00/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/Db_1) (SID_NAME= DB2))
)
