    Lightbulb Unanswered: listener problems

    Hi,

    I have a problem on a Linux Redhat Enterprise ES r3 with Oracle 9204.

    Suddenly when the listener stops before the backup, it stops effectife the listener, but on the linux system, when asking for all running oracle processes, I can still see a listener process, although when connecting over the listener it says me: no listener. What can be done to get this out of the Linux memory?

    the listener.log gives the normal reactions when shutting down or starting the listener, so no errors. Also when back starting the listener, this works, but then you see 2 listener processes on the linux like this:

    oracle 2005 1 0 10:13 ? 00:00:00 /usr1/oracle/product/9.2/bin/tns
    lsnr LISTENER -inherit

    can anyone help me out with this?

    Wink

    this was a clean install on an 'empty' linux server.

    is it possible you have two listeners running on different ports?

    otherwise you could just kill the process when needed.

    that's the problem, linux shows a listener running, but when doing listener stat, the oracle listener tells me no listener is running, So there is no other listener running accordinig the Oracle Listener status.
    I think the listener process is hold somewhere and not released

    I can kill it, but do I have to kill it than for example every day?

    why do you need to turn off the listener for a backup anyways?

    Ok, I don't need to bring the listener down for backup, but normally it shouldn't give this problem. It should work correct...
