Last updated on JANUARY 01, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Net Services - Version 12.1.0.1 to 12.2.0.1 [Release 12.1 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Netca throws the following error:

PRKC-1144 : File "/etc/oracle/olr.loc" not found.
[AWT-EventQueue-0] [ 2016-09-22 10:20:27.860 MDT ] [ConfigureListener.isHASConfigured:1607] Is Oracle Restart configured: false
[AWT-EventQueue-0] [ 2016-09-22 10:20:27.860 MDT ] [ConfigureListener.isHASRunning:1636] Is Oracle Restart running: false
[AWT-EventQueue-0] [ 2016-09-22 10:20:27.860 MDT ] [ConfigureListener.listenerExists:396] Is listener "LISTENER" already exists: false
[AWT-EventQueue-0] [ 2016-09-22 10:20:34.130 MDT ] [ConfigureListener.validateEndPoint:1059] Validating end-point: TCP:1521
oracle.net.ca.IllegalEndpointException: The information provided for this listener is currently in use by other software on this computer.
at oracle.net.ca.ConfigureListener.validateEndPoint(ConfigureListener.java:1087)

 

This error occurs no matter what port is provided to NetCA.  Netstat -an | grep <port> reveals that the port is NOT in use.

Changes

 This is likely a new installation or the first time that Net Configuration Assistant has been run on this node.
