I submit /usr/local/psa/bin/psadump --nostop -f /tmp/ as the root user. An early message in the log file is: Checking packages installation ... done Check postgres database existing ... found postgres database(s). Check Postgres server running ... pg_ctl: cannot be run as root Please log in (using, e.g., "su") as the (unprivileged) user that will own the server process. is not running The psadump proceeds, but doesn't appear to properly handle anything related to postgresql. Suggestions?
