Symptoms

Grid Control reports the following about the listener:
"The listener is down: Although a Listener with name "LISTENER", is running on this host at port:
"1521", it was not started using this target's "LISTENER.ORA" file. "

CORRECTIVE ACTION: To monitor the "EM Listener Target" with its present configuration, you must stop the currently running listener process, and it again using the Listener Parameter file: C:\oracle\product\network\admin\listener.ora. Alternatively, you can update this target's "LISTENER.ORA Location" parameter with the location of the currently running Listener, which was started using: C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\network\admin\listener.ora
