Hi All,
I have protected the listener by adding password. Following are the steps:

LSNRCTL>SET SAVE_CONFIG_ON_STOP ON
LSNRCTL> CHANGE_PASSWORD
OLD PASSWORD:
NEW PASSWORD: newPassword
Reenter the new password: newPassword

LSNRCTL>SET PASSWORD
Password: newPassword

LSNRCTL>STOP


The Listener stops successfully. I again start the listener and come out of the LSNRCTL prompt.

After this when I try to stop the listener from the UNIX prompt, it allows without asking for password and the listener stops.
$LSNRCTL STOP myInstance

Can anyone explain why this behaviour? I expect this statement to fail because I am not entering any password.

Thanks in advance
qA

Have you check the staus of your listner? If the Security setting is shown as ON, then the password is set for the listener. Else you have to reset the password
