Hi All,

I had a quick question about the sqlnet.ora for an issue that I am having.

We have a database running AIX 5L.  We wanted to test the Advance 
security network encryption without interfering with the current 

Therefore, we set the TNS_ADMIN variable to a directory and placed the 
listener.ora and sqlnet.ora file in the directory.  We named the listener 
LISTENER_SEC and set it to listen on a different port.

We can start the listener with lsnrctl start LISTENER_SEC.  However, for some 
reason it is not picking up the sqlnet.ora in the TNS_ADMIN directory. I set 
the following in the sqlnet.ora file as a test


However the listener is not writing to the log in that directory.  Any ideas on 
why it is not picking up the sqlnet.ora under the TNS_ADMIN directory?

Thanks in advance
