Sun Cluster & HA-Oracle: failed to start listener

Posted in Sun Cluster at 10:15 am by alessiodini

Yesterday i was configuring HA-Oracle by a customer.
When i tried to startup the listener I saw these errors:

Jul 14 09:43:33 system SC[SUNWscor.oracle_listener.start]:system-rg:system-listener: [ID 847065 user.error] Failed to start listener SYSTEM
Jul 14 09:43:33 system Cluster.RGM.rgmd: [ID 878162 daemon.error] Method failed on resource in resource group , exit code , time used: 7% of timeout

Looking for more detailed messages i saw these logs:

Jul 14 09:43:29 SC[SUNWscor.oracle_listener.start]:system-rg:system-listener: Starting listener SYSTEM.

LSNRCTL for Solaris: Version 8.1.7.4.0 – Production on 14-JUL-2011 09:43:30

TNS-01106: Listener using listener name LISTENER has already been started
Jul 14 09:43:33 SC[SUNWscor.oracle_listener.start]:system-rg:system-listener: Failed to start listener SYSTEM.

TNS-01106: Listener using listener name LISTENER has already been started

I did some check and i did not found any listener’s active process.

This is what i thought: “!?!?”

I asked to dba to verify the messages and he told me that was not active his process.

Anyway he tried to stop the listener manually and the command worked

I thought again “!?!?”

After this i was able to startup the listener within cluster
