Thread: TNS Listener not starting

    TNS Listener not starting

    I have a problem with getting the TNS Listener to start. I bought a new
    laptop (Dell 8500, with wireless lan), and have been trying to get both
    Oracle 8i (8.1.7) and 9i (9.2.0) to run on this machine. The installs
    have been successful, up until this point. Whenever I try to start the
    listener, the following error is shown in lsnrctl:

    TNSLSNR for 32-bit Windows: Version 8.1.7.0.0 - Production
    System parameter file is C:\oracle\ora81\network\admin\listener.ora
    Log messages written to C:\oracle\ora81\network\log\listener.log
    Attempted to listen on:
    (DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=mylaptop)(PORT=1521)))
    TNS-12560: TNSrotocol adapter error
    TNS-00530: Protocol adapter error
    32-bit Windows Error: 38: Filename too long

    I thought maybe it might be related to the wireless lan, but this error
    occurs whether or not I have the wireless lan running. It also occurs
    in Oracle 9.2. I have McAfee's personal firewall installed but disabled.
    I also have a lot of other software installed on the machine, and
    really hate to go thru the time consuming process of elimination by
    uninstalling these.

    Anyone have any ideas? I saw previous posts from years ago that say to
    avoid IP addresses in the ORA files (listener, tnsnames) but that is not
    the case here - I'm using machine name for host. I also saw posts about
    a large listener.ora file, or a long pathname to it, but that is not the
    case either. I really don't want to have to return this laptop, but if
    I can't get Oracle running on it I'll have to. Please help!

    Hi all,

    I took the drastic step of uninstalling McAfee's Dell Security Center,
    including all antivirus software, firewall, and privacy features. I
    have found the problem! After reboot, Oracle TNS Listener is now
    starting normally.
