Heads Up! – New Nutanix Era Version 2.1 PostgreSQL User and Group Requirements

Quick note to let you know about a PostgreSQL related change that has been implemented in Nutanix Era 2.1. As you know Era comes with a PostgreSQL software profile including VM built on CentOS Linux release 7.3.1611 and PostgreSQL version 10.4. This Era software profile is not affected meaning this note is addressing the PostgreSQL software profiles created by the Era admins.

With Era 2.1 the Linux operating system users era and postgres must be added to a group with the same name meaning:

  • User era added to group era
  • User postgres added to group postgres

Unless this is already in your PostgreSQL software profile make sure to change it. If you don’t the provisioning of DB server VM and DB instance will fail.
