Listener failed to start. See the error message(s) above...



Solution: 

In the listener.ora file there were blank lines under the section SID_LIST_LISTENER. We removed the blank line entries and brought up the listener. (please note that this may be one of the scenarios)

Erroneous listener.ora file excerpts below:

SID_LIST_LISTENER =
 (SID_LIST =
 (SID_DESC =
 (GLOBAL_DBNAME = ORCL1)
 (ORACLE_HOME = /opt/oracle/product/11.2.0.4.RAC)
 (SID_NAME = ORCL1)
 )
 <<<<< blank line
 (SID_DESC =
 (GLOBAL_DBNAME = ORCL2)
 (ORACLE_HOME = /opt/oracle/product/11.2.0.4.RAC)
 (SID_NAME = ORCL2)
 )
 <<<<< blank line
)
