I do apologise this is a second post of the same thing, I accidently had
HTML enabled on the email...
Hi, I am attempting to swap from gdbm to postgresql for holding data.
I configure and compile ipac 1.27 with
./configure --enable-classic=no --enable-default-access=postgre
And followed all the instructions for creating the postgresql database
and users etc, everything went through and passed, including checking
the databases through webmin...
But when I start ipac-ng with fetchipac -S I get the following error
[root at redhat sysbackup]# fetchipac -S
Connection to database '(null)' failed.
FATAL: Database "root" does not exist in the system catalog.
fetchipac: error while opening access database
cant operate while database access is absent
My ipac.conf is as follows
[root at redhat sysbackup]# cat /etc/ipac-ng/ipac.conf
# This is the main ipac-ng configuration file. It contains the
# configuration directives that give the ipac-ng its instructions.
## mode of operations: operate only like old ipac or not
classic mode = no
## specify access agent. supported are: files, postg. files works with
classic mode only
access agent = postgre
## accouting agent. iptables and ipchains available now. (ipchains is
not supported in nonclassic mode)
account agent = iptables
## storage. gdbm, postgre and files supported. (files is not
storage = postgre
## rules file for classic mode
rules file = /etc/ipac-ng/rules.conf
## login all users at startup (specific only for nonclassic mode) (only
those who has enough cash)
login at start = yes
## support for traffic passing to\from auth host (specific only for
## name or ip of the auth host
## disable support if not specified,
##auth host = sibinet.com
# dont store lines contains only zeroes to speedup processing and to
drop zero lines = yes
Any help would be very much appreciated...
