LOCAL_LISTENER

local_listener shows without private IP.

SQL> show parameter local_listener

NAME                 TYPE     VALUE
-------------------  ------  -------------------------------
local_listener       string   (ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=
                                     10.1.1.11)(PORT=1526))

CAUSES

local_listener includes private IP only, but private HAIP is missing.

SOLUTION

ENABLE MGMTDB

$ srvctl enable mgmtdb

$ srvctl status mgmtdb
Database is enabled
Instance -MGMTDB is running on node racnode1

Add private HAIP into local_listener

SQL> alter system set local_listener='(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=10.1.1.11)(PORT=1526))','(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=169.254.105.132)(PORT=1526))' scope=both;

System altered.

SQL> show parameter local_listener

NAME          TYPE    VALUE
------------- ------- ------------------------------
local_listener string (ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=10.1.1.11)
                      (PORT=1526)), (ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)
                      (HOST=169.254.105.132)(PORT=1526))

Run oclumon command again successfully.

$ oclumon manage -repos checkretentiontime 259200
The Cluster Health Monitor repository can support the desired retention for 2 hosts
