Bouncing the listener

  1. We will start this simulation at the Windows command prompt. Type the lsnrctl command, and press ENTER to start the Listener Control Program.
  2. Issue the stop command to shutdown the listener.
  3. The listener will stop. You will see a message telling you that your stop command completed successfully. Now, type start and press ENTER in order to restart the listener.
  4. You get quite a bit of feedback when starting the listener. Under the section titled Services Summary, you will see a list of instances for which the listener is listening. The COIN instance will be one of them. Use the exit command now, to return to the command prompt.
  5. This is the end of the simulation.

Starting and Shutting Down the Listener

The Oracle listener is set up to start automatically whenever your server machine is restarted. However, when your system encounters unforeseen circumstances, or when you have manually stopped the listener, you can restart it at the command line. To do so, use the following:
lsnrctl start
You can use Enterprise Manager to stop the listener. To do so, navigate to the Listener: listener_name page by clicking Listener on the Home page. To shut down the listener, click Stop. You can also stop it at the command line using the following:

lsnrctl stop
