Windows: NetCA and LSNRCTL Unable to Create Control Panel Service for TNSListener TNS-12560 (Doc ID 1944421.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 16, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Net Services - Version to [Release 11.2]
Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit) - Version: 2008 R2


Following a new installation of 11gR2 64bit on Windows 2008 or Windows 7, the NetCA tool fails to create a listener service.  Additionally, the Lsnrctl start fails with ORA-12560.  Even when launching the CMD prompt with "Run as Administrator" privileges, the Lsnrctl utility fails to create the service.

NetCA may not yield any after create listener process but no TNSListener service appears in the Control panel.  You may be logged in as an Administrator but are unable to create the listener service.


 This is likely a new installation or a patchset has been applied.
