I’m trying to install SciDB on two Amazon AWS EC2 servers. On the step to install postgres (https://paradigm4.atlassian.net/wiki/display/ESD/Pre-Installation+Tasks#Pre-InstallationTasks-InstallingPostgres) on host0, I ran into a problem - I had been referring to host0 as “matDB1”, I had defined it in /etc/hosts, but when I attempted to use it in the postgress installation command as part of the netmask it failed - here is the command I tried initially:
deployment/deploy.sh prepare_postgresql postgres postgres matDB1/24 matDB1
(based on the instructions and ifconfig results on my system, I set the netmask parameter to matDB1/24)
I tried to run it again using the IP address for matDB1 instead of the name, it failed. I tried uninstalling postgres, deleting any postgres files, without luck.
I continued the installation using my second host (matDB2) as host0, and the installation steps worked, however when I try to start the system it fails. I’m looking to re-do the installation from scratch (start from a fresh OS install) however I’d like to understand the right way to do the postgres install before doing that.
Thank you in advance
