Failed to start PBS dataservice


#1

I am getting failed to acquire lock problem.
Someone in the forum had a similar problem and they had corrected it.
The suggested solutions are:- 1.To clean /var folder if it is full(My /var folder is only 74% full)
2.Few lines be added in pbspro/sbin/pbs_dataservice to check the ownership of /var/run/postgresql.
if it is different from the database user defined in /var/spool/pbspro/server_priv/db_user, the ownership should be changed accordingly.(I don’t have postgresql directory created in /var/run)
Here is what I am getting-
[root@host1 datastore]# service pbs restart
