OK just discovered something weird... you're right in saying the user
doesn't have 'create role' privelege, however, if I right-click the
server connection, new object, new role, it works - and the role gets
created within the server because I can use psql on the server to
connect with the new role - only snag is once you've added the role in
PgAdmin, you have to Refresh the login role list manually (right-click
Perhaps it's because I have super-user ticked for this user? If so,
does that override the CREATE ROLE privelege?
I can send some screenshots showing the process if needed.
