detect ADMIN_RESTRICTIONS without SET

Hi,
 
Does anyone know a way to test if the ADMIN_RESTRICTIONS parameter has been set in the listener.ora without looking at the listener.ora and also without issuing a set command to test the error code. i.e. is there an undocumented listener command to check the value of this command?
 
cheers

Pete,
 
Maybe it's possible using snmp. Sometime ago I did a test to read the Oracle listener MIB's with ucd-snmp. The information can be found at : http://groups.google.com/group/comp.databases.oracle.server/msg/4a0b68aa 5ea50896?q=snmp+ivan+group:*oracle*&hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&as_drrb=b&as_mind=12&as_minm=5&as_miny=2002&as_maxd=13&as_maxm=6&as_maxy=2003&rnum=1
Snmp worked with 8i and 9i. I work now with  10G and it seems it doesn't know snmp anymore. I can't find the listener.v1 mib-file. If you have that file (in $ORACLE_HOME/network/doc) take a look if it has a MIB to get the admin_restrictions value.

Hi Ivan,
 
Thanks bery much for your answer. The MIB file is very interesting, at least on my machine that has 9iR2 installed. It does not include the admin_restrictions variable/parameter though. Also the problem is I want to check this value remotely so checking via SNMP is not a good option as its off by default and it is not viable to ask to have it turned on for this.
 
Thanks anyway, it was as good idea.
 
cheers
