    Dear All,

    Problem is solved.

    I have checked in /tmp folder, it also have .oracle folder.  I have change the permission of /tmp/.oracle

    to ora<sid> and group dba.

    Now lisenter is started.

    Thanks,

    Nirav

    Dear Nirav and SCN users,

    TNS-12555: TNS:permission denied

    Solution:

    Commands:

    SAPSUSE:/var/tmp # chown oraids:dba /var/tmp/.oracle/

    SAPSUSE:/var/tmp # su oraids

    SAPSUSE:oraids 50> lsnrctl start

    Regards,

    Database is Oracle 10.2.0.1.0

    Version is unsupported, apply last patch and continue.

    Database version is also out of support, you should own the issues and resolutions part.

    Regards,

    Clear the /var/tmp/.oracle directory and start from fresh:

    1. Stop all listeners
    2. Remove the /var/tmp/.oracle directory, e.g. run the following from the root account:

      rm -rf /var/tmp/.oracle

    3. Check the listener(s) configuration contains unique keys specified for each IPC endpoint and each listener
    4. Start the listener(s) from the normal Oracle OS user.

    Clearing the /var/tmp/.oracle directory will force the listeners to recreate the socket files from fresh, each with its own correct ownership.
