Hi,

Thanks for the quick reply. Could you please guide me where could I check the settings or so to identify where postmaster is trying to create the pid file?

Best Regards,

I would check where postmaster is trying to create the pid and check if postgres has permission to write to the folder.
Then Maybe change the location for pid creation.

Check also postgreslog and see if you can spot the error.
