Hi, mkaro

Finally I got it running correctly, the upgrade issue is due to the firewall…
Shutdown the firewall of the system and then PBS can works well, thanks for your advices again~

My recent install failed, RHEL 7.5 and PBSpro 18.1.2

Install server and start the service

Hello Prakash,

The status I see is “unresolved”

Has this problem really resolved?


#26

Hi @spalanisamy1 - No, it is Work in Progress.

Hi @spalanisamy1 - The issue is because of the postgresql version that is installed by default. On updating to a newer version, I was able to start PBS. I have updated PP-1284 with my findings in this comment.
