No longer listening on: (DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=tcp)(HOST=myhost)(PORT=1521)))
TNS-01197: Listener failed to create the end point
TNS-12532: TNS:invalid argument
Capture a truss of the failure to start using:
truss -o listener.trc -faed lsnrctl start <listener_name>
Check for LD_LIBRARY_PATH and LIBPATH settings in truss like:
LIBPATH and/or LD_LIBRARY_PATH must have changed in user profile since the last restart of the listener.
