"lsnrctl start" starts the listener process.
"lsnrctl reload" only reloads the configuration of the listener. If you issue a "lsnrctl reload" when the listener is down, it will give you errors.
If the machine is down, the listner process is down too? even thouth I don't stop the process?
That is not what I am not sure?

When you start the machine up, unless you've included some automatic listener start on your machine, the listener won't be running.
So just start the listener using:
