Hi guys, my name is Javier and I’m totally new in oracle.

I’ve an easy question for you guys. I’m using Oracle10g version 10.2.0 running in windows 2003.

My problem is that I want to stop the listener in the Database control and I can’t. I did it in DOS command line and just stopping windows services, but I want to do it in Database console also.

The problem is, when I’m going to stopping it, I’ve to put and user and password in order to stop it, then I did it putting a new password in DOS command line with LSNRCTL command, just like says in this article:
http://orafaq.com/node/567

And my listener configuration file look like this now:

# listener.ora Network Configuration File: C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1\network\admin\listener.ora
# Generated by Oracle configuration tools.

SID_LIST_LISTENER =
(SID_LIST =
(SID_DESC =
(SID_NAME = PLSExtProc)
(ORACLE_HOME = C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1)
(PROGRAM = extproc)
)
)

LISTENER =
(DESCRIPTION_LIST =
(DESCRIPTION =
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = IPC)(KEY = EXTPROC1))
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = oracle10g)(PORT = 1521))
)
)


#----ADDED BY TNSLSNR 12-SEP-2007 09:27:16---
PASSWORDS_LISTENER = 8CDEAA943B32F19F
#--------------------------------------------

And the encrypted password is “topsecurity007” and when I put it and the user is just the “administrator” user for windows 2003, it still says “wrong password”.

What I’m doing wrong?

Thanks

In DB Control you can go to the Listener's homepage and click on the Authentication tab. Here you can specify a password.

I read that is not good idea to put password in the oracle10g listener, it could be dangerous? That’s truth or there some exception to the rule?

Thanks

Javier

Well in 10g, OS Authentication is enabled by default for the listener and therefore a password isn't really needed if it is being administered by a single user. If you set the OS Authentication off or would like multiple users to administer the listener, then a password should be used.
