I tried to initialize the postgresql data directory, and I get this error :
[postgres@vix-db1-1 ~]$ /usr/pgsql-9.5/bin/initdb --nodename=vix-db1-1 -D /var/lib/pgsql/9.5/data The files belonging to this database system will be owned by user "postgres". This user must also own the server process. The database cluster will be initialized with locale "en_US.UTF-8". The default database encoding has accordingly been set to "UTF8". The default text search configuration will be set to "english". Data page checksums are disabled. creating directory /var/lib/pgsql/9.5/data ... ok creating subdirectories ... ok selecting default max_connections ... 100 selecting default shared_buffers ... 128MB selecting dynamic shared memory implementation ... posix creating configuration files ... ok creating template1 database in /var/lib/pgsql/9.5/data/base/1 ... ok initializing pg_authid ... ok initializing dependencies ... ok creating system views ... ok creating cluster information ... FATAL: syntax error at or near "-" at character 16 STATEMENT: CREATE NODE vix-db1-1 WITH (type = 'coordinator'); child process exited with exit code 1 initdb: removing data directory "/var/lib/pgsql/9.5/data"
It says “FATAL: syntax error at or near “-” at character 16”, but the hostname has to have the “-” due to new server version.
I tried doing it without nodename, but for that another problem :
[postgres@vix-db1-1 ~]$ /usr/pgsql-9.5/bin/initdb -D /var/lib/pgsql/9.5/data initdb: Postgres-XL node name is mandatory Try "initdb --help" for more information. [postgres@vix-db1-1 ~]$
How do I resolve this problem?
