Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 715265
Oracle DB installation unnecessarily starts the listener before it's correctly set up
Last modified: 2014-07-04 09:26:46 EDT
Description of problem:
Installation of Oracle database (not installation of the oracle-server
package itself, but installation of catalog, db setup, etc...)
unnecessarily starts the listener before the listener is properly setup.
Starting the listener without a proper listener.ora leads to the listener
to be connecting to 0.0.0.0 (its internal default behavior), which will
fail in an IPv6 only setup.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. IPv6 only environment, Satellite 5.4.1 installation
2. Check /var/log/rhn/install_db.log
Starting /opt/apps/oracle/web/product/10.2.0/db_1/bin/tnslsnr: please wait...
TNSLSNR for Linux: Version 10.2.0.4.0 - Production
Log messages written to /opt/apps/oracle/web/product/10.2.0/db_1/network/log/listener.log
Error listening on: (ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=tcp)(HOST=)(PORT=1521))
TNS-12545: Connect failed because target host or object does not exist
TNS-12560: TNS:protocol adapter error
TNS-00515: Connect failed because target host or object does not exist
Listener failed to start. See the error message(s) above...
No error like the above.
This error is not fatal to the installation, but should probably be resolved
for a smooth Satellite IPv6 installation.
