Hello

I'm trying to change the current_listener on our linux oracle10g server. This is what i do
LSNRCTL>l show current_listener
Current listener is LISTENER
LSNRCTL>set current_listener LISTENER_S2
Current listener is LISTENER_S2
LSNRCTL>exit
$lsnrctl
LSNRCTL>show current_listener
Current listener is LISTENER

It changes when i set it but it doesn't save it. I've tryied from lsnrctl to save_config but the result it the same.

Thank you.
Teo

set current_listener  doesn't change the processes running it only changes which listener the lsnrctl program will modify for unclarified commands.

It simply changes which listener that lsnrctl will run commands for.

so,  if you do...

$lsnrctl
LSNRCTL>     <<<  at this point nothing happens, the current listener is LISTENER
LSNRCTL>start    <<<<-  this will start a listener called LISTENER
LSNRCTL>set current_listener LISTENER_S2  <<<<-  this changes which listener will be operated on
LSNRCTL>start   <<<<<-  this will start a listener called LISTENER_S2
LSNRCTL>exit

you will now have 2 listeners running   LISTENER  and LISTENER_S2

$ lsnrctl stop LISTENER    <<<< this will stop the listener called LISTENER
$ lsnrctl stop LISTENER_S2   <<< this will stop the listener called LISTENER_S2

lsnrctl always defaults to LISTENER as the current_listener

you can specify actions by including the listener you want with the command to override the default

$ lsnrctl start LISTENER_S2  <<< this will start the LISTENER_S2 listener

you're welcome,  but why only a B?  if you needed additional information, just ask,
