    Multiple Listener

    998276
      Is it Possible to run multiple Listener for each database instance. Like 2 Listener and 2 instances where Listener A is responsible for instance A and Listener B is responsible for instance B. I have tryied to do that but after starting the Listener B the Listener A shuts down. Is it possible and if it is possible what should i check?? I have found the following post http://www.dba-oracle.com/t_configure_multiple_listeners.htm where the second listener is configured in the second oracle home. Do i realy need second oracle home to run second listener? or is the problem in my configuration?

          Yes, it is possible to run multiple listener.
          It is also possible to poke yourself in the eye with a sharp pencil.
          You would be wise to avoid doing either activity due to the pain that results.

          Simply put, you do not "need" to create & support more than 1 listener.
