Oracle Intelligent agent does not start

Hi

I try to start Oracle Intelligent Agent on a server, but the agent dies after several seconds.

The last entry in the tracefile:

...
(1) snsbitts_ts: acquired the bit
(1) snsbitts_ts: acquired the bit
(1) nsmfr: 2592 bytes at 0x80000001002d9290
(1) nsmfr: 800 bytes at 0x80000001002d8aa8
(1) nsmfr: 224 bytes at 0x80000001002d89b0
failed to connect to (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = 172.20.102.57)(PORT = 1748)).
GetConnection failed with 12

My Question:
obviously the agent tries to connect to the correct port on the server (1748) and has no success, what does "GetConnection failed with 12" mean ?

Versions:
HP-UX 11.11
Oracle Intelligent Agent 9.2.0.2
netstat -a | grep 1748 --> shows nothing

Thanks
Chris

Re: Oracle Intelligent agent does not start

Hi,
this is from a metalink note:


The 9i Listener must be started prior to starting the 9i Intelligent Agent.

Perform a loopback from HPUX machine where the database reside by issuing the following command:

sqlplus username/password@net_service_name

where net_service_name is an entry in your 9i ORACLE_HOME TNSNAMES.ORA file.


The 9i Listener and Intelligent Agent can listen for your 8i database. The higher versioned, 9i, Listener and Intelligent Agent must be used to used.

The error messages indicate that the Listener is not started or available. Ensure that the 9i Listener is started.



HTH,
Massimo

Re: Oracle Intelligent agent does not start

Hi

Thanks for the answers and sorry for posting this thread twice.

I found this metalink-thread before, and it describes exactly my problem, but in this thread there is no solution.

1748 is not the port of the database listener, it's the default port of the OIA to connect to the Oracle Management Server. The OIA should start without a database (and listener) on the server. So it's no problem of the listener.

I'll open a tar at metalink.

Thanks Chris

Re: Oracle Intelligent agent does not start

Hi,
a couple of ohter checks:

- use nmap againt the destination server, and check if there is already some other thing listening. may be there is a firewall between the two server (but i think that you would know) or another program that bind to that port and that you overlooked...

- check /var/adm/inetd.sec, may be toy set some strictly secutiry policy

HTH,
Massimo
