    Another VCSA Backup Failure

    BtrieveBill Novice

      I am attempting to use the VCSA Backup functionality in v6.5.0, and having a problem that doesn't appear to match any of the other people having issues.  (Lucky me!)


      I set up the backup job normally via the VCSA console.  I am doing the backup via simple FTP to an internal FTP server, using a fully-qualified name and the proper username.  While monitoring the FTP server, I see the incoming connections and several files getting uploaded -- then the system deletes all the files it just uploaded and reports "BackupManager encountered an exception. Please check logs for details."


      The full backup log from this job is attached, but in essence, everything looks fine until here:


      2018-01-31 17:26:16,608 [VCDBBackup:PID-33139] INFO: Execute command: ['/opt/vmware/vpostgres/current/bin/pg_dumpall', '-U', 'postgres', '-p', '5432', '-s', '-c', '--i


      2018-01-31 17:26:18,391 [VCDBBackup:PID-33139] ERROR: Password:

      2018-01-31 17:26:18,392 [VCDBBackup:PID-33139] ERROR: pg_dump: [archiver (db)] connection to database "vco" failed: fe_sendauth: no password supplied

      2018-01-31 17:26:18,393 [VCDBBackup:PID-33139] ERROR: pg_dumpall: pg_dump failed on database "vco", exiting


      If it matters, this environment was originally vCenter 5.5 Windows, upgraded to vCenter 6.0 Windows, and then migrated to vCenter 6.5 Appliance.


      Thoughts on how to fix this?
