A little while ago, I thought it might be a good thing to reboot mt server I have been working on it all day. I closed all open programs and restarted the server. Now the TNSListner service will not start. I get the error "1067: The process terminated unexpectedly" when I try and start it manually. All my other data base service are starting just fine.
I went to the the Net 8 Configuration Assistant and tried to configure an new listner ( after I had renamed the non functioning .exe ) I get all the way through and then get the message "Could not create listner". I have always been able to create a listner this way. Oh and Net Manager, yeah I tried that too - nada.
I have made no changes to my TNSNAMES.ora nor the listner.ora files. Everything was functioning just fine before the reboot.
Without this as you know, I can not get into my db - Who said that Orical 9i was unbreakable? Oh that is not the question, the question is how do I get my listner service back up and runnning, and if you know why did it fail anyway?
