Symptoms

Customer has a new Oracle10g R2 (10.2.0.1) RDBMS installation on Solaris Operating System (SPARC
64-bit) 5.10.

Customer reports the database installation went fine. However, after changing variables in
/etc/system and rebooting), the 10g R2 TNS Listener will not start.

The following errors are reported:

================
LSNRCTL> start
Starting /u01/oracle/product/10.2.0/Db_1/bin/tnslsnr: please wait...

================

Customer also reports they can see the TNS Listener opening the port 1521, and see that a socket is allocated, but it fails for some unknown reason.

This is a new install for development, so if we resolve soon, that's fine.
