Listener 12560 Error (Listener port already in use)

Hi Gurus,

Once completing oracle 12c binary installation , while i am trying to start listener in windows server 2008 , it is throwing me tns 12560 error.

Even while trying to add listener using netca utility , it shows Already listener is in use

Scenario ,

In Windows host already there is a oracle installed for MDG server , now trying to install another oracle 12c for BODS server while creating listener for this server it says listener port already in use , even we tried to give all other ports still no luck.

Really appreciate your inputs to create listener.

    Thanks Prithvi for nice info.

    Solution is as below,

    1. logged in with DB user specified during installation.

    2.Now logged in cmd , lsnrctl

    3. Stopped the listener , by stop command.

    4. Now started , with new listnener name.

    Here  it was taking the listener info already existing for MDG system , that is why stopped and started with new name.

    Thanks & Best Regards

    Pradeep G.
