Thanks for all your inputs. Hope you all had a wonderful holiday!!!


  1. I have XP professional.
  2. Here is a clarification on the listener startup. When I reboot, the listener is always not started and the OracleServiceXE is. On manual startup of the listener, it does start,but with some errors. And it fails to bind to the database instance. Here is the output of the lsnrctl start:

3. I do have a copy of the listener.ora file before I edited it. And I did try to restore it and the tnsnames.ora and try them , but I get the same result.


4. You mentioned "Instead of using localhost (IIRC that won't work) you should use a local
loopback adapter with a fixed ip address. On windows, it should be the last
installed network device (for it will show up as first for the installer).
Put this one fully qualified in your host-file (first entry) and run the
installer. "

How do I do that? Received on Wed Dec 26 2007 - 11:44:32 CST
