When starting the Concurrent Generic Service Manager (FNDSM), all the other managers starts but the GSM fails to start. The following error occurs within the Internal Concurrent Manager (ICM) log file:
The Apps listener fails to spawn the FNDSM executable; however, All paths, port, FNDSM entries looks good within the listener.ora and tnsnames.ora files.
tnsping FNDSM_<Machine_Name>_<SID> gives "TNS-12541: TNS:no listener", Yet, lsnrctl status shows the listener is up with "Service "FNDSM" has 1 instance(s). Instance "FNDSM", status UNKNOWN, has 1 handler(s) for this service..."
No errors within in the Apps listener log.
A listener trace file shows the following error message:
Load contained errors
Error stack follows:
