UCMDB Support Tip: Cannot install Data Flow Probe 10.10. PostgreSQL error
In the event you encounter the following error messages during an install attached in zip file, and tried both 😧 volume and C: volume installs, and having failed on both.
Contents of probe_setup.log: Running C:\\hp\\UCMDB\\DataFlowProbe\\tools\\dbscripts\\createProbeDBs.cmd at ... psql: could not connect to server: Connection refused (0x0000274D/10061) is the server running on host "localhost" (::1) and accepting TCP/IP connections on port 5432? Could not connect to server: Connection refused (0x0000274D/10061) is the server running on host "localhost" (127.0.0.1) and accepting TCP/IP connections on port 5432?
As a workaround, it is suggested to manually add the user on security tab for D drive and gave full permission. To allow uCMDB 10.10 probe install.

The problem seems to occur because of the PostGreSQL installer is not launched with admin privs. The master installer runs as admin, but when it calls the PostGreSQL installer for some reason it is without admin.
In previous versions the MySQL installer ran in admin and had no problem.
We have run restricted permissions on our Windows servers for some years. It is a security recommendation, especially where everything runs as a service under the Windows service ID. Recommending full access to users sidesteps what is becomming a standard for enterprise security. In other words, it is NOT a solution, just a workaround, and one that leaves the server out of compliance with increasingly strict data security standards.
HP needs to find a way to resolve the installer process so that either the PostGreSQL installer runs with admin rights or that the minimum required directory perms are automatically configured and later revoked if possible. It worked under versions that used MySQL, and should work with the newer versions with PostGreSQL, and not with a "fix" that steps backwards from security.
