TNS-12541:TNS:no listener while LSNRCTL START

User592513Apr 7 2016 — edited Apr 7 2016


I installed oracle 11g in my local machine, with elevated privileges (I don't have ADMIN rights).

I found hundreds of discussions on the same error, but none of the suggestions are solving my issue.

My Database is up and running and I am able to login as SYS and SYSTEM users in SQLPlus, but my LISTENER is not running and I couldn't start it

everything on listener.ora, tnsnames.ora files looks good. Error when run LSNRCTL Status from CMD:

LSNRCTL> status

Connecting to (DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=*****HostName****)(PORT=1521)))

TNS-12541: TNS:no listener

TNS-12560: TNS:protocol adapter error

  TNS-00511: No listener

   64-bit Windows Error: 61: Unknown error

While installing Oracle 11g,Installing Network Configurations Assistant step Failed, and I skipped that. Not sure if the LSNRCTL issue is related to that.

And tasklist /svc | find "oracle" CMD listing only one service, for ORCL, I am not seeing the service for LISTENER.

   C:\Windows\System32>tasklist /svc | find "oracle"

oracle.exe                    3320 OracleServiceORCL

I am circling in loop. Please help.
