Last updated on MARCH 11, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Net Services - Version 11.2.0.4 and later
Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit)

Symptoms

When using Net Configuration Assistant (NetCA) to delete or modify a listener in one Home (call this HOME1 and LISTENER1), the tool warns that "the listener is currently running."
However, the Windows service for LISTENER1 shows that the listener is not started.
The only running Listener service is from a second Oracle Home (call this HOME2 and LISTENER2).
