The House-O-Pets database in Atlanta, which you added as a node in a previous lesson, is an MTS. To help this database handle thousands of concurrent user connections, you must create multiple listeners for the database.


Given the original tnsnames.ora file below, add the appropriate entries for the tnsnames.ora file. You need to consider these factors:
  1. Failover is on.
  2. Load balancing is on.
  3. The first listener address is already shown. The second listener is on the same host and the same protocol, but is on port 1526.
        (PORT = 1521))
