I'm using Postgresql 7.4.2 on RedHat 9. We backup a database weekly with
the following command:
pg_dump --clean --create --verbose --format=c \
--compress 9 -U admin $DBSID \
| dbdumpsplit $DBSID.dump
where $DBSID is the database name. The database is very large, so we
split the dump in 1GB chunks.
Created a new database to hold a copy of the backup. Then issued
cat $DBSID.dump* | pg_restore -d NEW_DB
This errs with following message:
pg_restore: [archiver (db)] could not execute query: ERROR: user "100"
does not exist
Issuing a \du does not list a user with name or id 100 on the backed-up
database. Created a user with:
createuser -i 100 dropme
Run the restore again, but gave same error!
Tried to drop the user:
and it returned an error saying that user dropme owned a database and
could not be dropped.
Please help me cause I'm really baffled with this odd behavior.
