It is EBS, however, the database server is NOT EBS configured. We control our own installs on it.

So the applmgr username suggests that this might be an EBiz install? is that correct? If so then
  1. Ebiz has some specific control scripts for databases and listeners and some funky sqlnet config. I'd expect SET ORACLE_HOME, TNS_ADMIN etc not to work in any Ebiz environment.
  2. the environment for the listener is set in the registry (and read from the registry by the executable lsnrctl - in general its often a mistake to set the environment on windows, instead use the full path to the relevant executable.
  3. if it is ebiz and windows, good luck with that, you are in a small minority there.

That's the problem. I am trying to start the listener but it keeps referencing the 10g or 11g r1 listener.ora files.

Hi Jeffrey,

the output you've provided shows you setting the environment while the listener is already running. What is the TNS_ADMIN set to when the listener is being started (via the Windows service I assume) in the registry?
