Is the postgres service started?
service vmware-vpostgres status
I checked and the server is not running
but if i try to start i fails with this error
LBLRALVC1:/ # service vmware-vpostgres start
Starting VMware vPostgres: pg_ctl: failed to find server pid
Examine the log output.
here is the config output
when i try to run a backup of the DB I get this
LBLRALVC1:/opt/vmware/vpostgres/current/bin # ./pg_dump VCDB -U vc -Fp -c > /tmp /DBBakup
pg_dump: [archiver (db)] connection to database "VCDB" failed: could not connect to server: No such file or directory
Is the server running locally and accepting
connections on Unix domain socket "/tmp/.s.PGSQL.5432"?
thanks in advance
That doesn't look good. You can't create a backup because the service is stopped.
This would have to be investigated by our support. Please raise a support request.
