Re: Error creating listener on new RAC node

Standard vs EE shouldn't matter as far as the CRS is concerned. The last time I messed around with srvctl was on 9i/Linux so I'm a bit handicapped here but...

Can you send me the tnsnames.ora and listener.ora entries from node 1? You said you had the listener running there after manually configuring? - I lost your original note. If you want to send as an attachment just directly email me vs the list.

Also - what is the output of:

srvctl config database -d db_name


srvctl status database -d db_name -v

Replies in-line. One thing I hadn't mentioned is that I'm using Standard Edition, if that makes any difference.

Not yet. I hadn't gotten to that step in the documentation yet.

I was planning on using DBCA.

The ORACLE_HOME is local to each node.

I ran this on the first node. REMOTE_LISTENER is set to 'LISTENERS_TCORE',
which is defined in my tnsnames.ora file to be the address of the listener on node 1. LOCAL_LISTENER wasn't set.

Nothing is returned.

CRS-0210: Could not find resource
ora.oracletest1.LISTENER_ORACLETEST1.lsnr. (I get the same error on both nodes, since I had dropped the listener on node 1 in an attempt to setup both listeners at once from that node.)
