Applies to:

Enterprise Manager for Oracle Database - Version to [Release 10.2 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


It is not possible for Enterprise Manager Grid Control 10g or  Grid Control 11g or Cloud Control  to discover a listener which has been started using the ifile parameter .  For example:-

1) create a listener which uses an ifile
contents of listener.ora are:-


contents of listener_test.ora are:-

    (SID_DESC =
      (GLOBAL_DBNAME = test)
      (ORACLE_HOME = c:\Testhome\network\admin)
      (SID_NAME = test)

    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = machine1)(PORT = 15888))

LOG_DIRECTORY_LISTENERtest = c:\Testhome\network\admin

2) Attempt to discover the database and listener in Grid Control
3) The listener will not be detected.

Additionally, starting a 12c agent may result in server memory utilization reaching 100% and server crashing.
