This does seem to be a bit sparse in the documentation department, not helped by gateway timeouts in tahiti. But anyways, searching metalink for the term brings up Note: 403537.1, Best Practices for Securing Oracle E-Business Suite, which claims that "when ADMIN_RESTRICTIONS is ON, all the set commands in lsnrctl are disabled and the only way to change the configuration is to edit the listener.ora file." So I would guess the default is off, since normally I can use set commands.

The listener is a separate process, so I would guess there is no other place to see it. Maybe some OS utilities could dig into the process... Even Pete asks:;action=display;num=1135270939


-- is bogus.
