I just found out that the LISTENER I've creating with a password was with "-inherit" settings. Twice I succeeded in doing this, but it seems that it's not working when I tested it. Thus, I opted to get rid of it's listener.bak file and set the password again. Now I just can't stop it because of this error message: "TNS-01169: The listener has not recognized the password". I've tried every passwords I made, and tried resetting it, but I'm not successful either, it's the same error message.

My last option would be to restart the db Server (since the original listener.ora is already intact), but if you have any ideas to extend to me, it's highly appreciated!

Thank you.

Next time, please post what you have done instead of explaining it.
The proper way to do it in lsnrctl prompt is,

set current_listener thisListener
set password newPassword
stop

01169, 00000, "The listener has not recognized the password"
// *Cause: The listener has the password security mechanism enabled and
// requires the correct password to execute any command other than VERSION.
// The user attempted to issue one of the privileged administrative commands,
// but could not be successfully authenticated with the password provided.
// *Action: If an authorized user is attempting the command, then use the
// SET PASSWORD command at the LSNRCTL prompt with the listener password.
// If you do not know the password, then you are trying to execute
// an inappropriate command.


FWIW - in 10+ years I never set the listener password;
since I was the only person who could log onto the DB Server.

Good for you, but this is in compliance after our IT Security Group completed the VA (vulnerability assessement) of all our servers.

Thanks for sharing the info.

The main issue here is that I forgot the current password I used.

Thanks for your time.

Metalink note 92604.1 seems to talk about this situation (forgotten password).
See if it helps. Else I am really out of idea.
Either something is really wrong or we are missing something very basic.
