ORA-00130: invalid listener address...

Thanks to Chet Justice for this story

The actual error was:

view counter

ORA-00119: invalid specification for system parameter LOCAL_LISTENER
ORA-00130: invalid listener address '(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=oracle)(PORT=1521))

I had finally managed to create my 11gR2 instance when I got this. So what happened?

1. Started OEL 5.5 64 bit VM
2. Logged in as user oracle
3. Opened terminal and ran . oraenv
4. sqlplus / as sysdba
5. Issued the startup command.

ORA-00130 from the docs:

Cause: The listener address specification is not valid.
Action: Make sure that all fields in the listener address (protocol, port, host, key, ...) are correct.

So it has something to do with how I configured everything. What else did I change on the system?
