With each version 8.0.4 and 8.1.1, I have tried at different times to
* on a clean machine with no folders or users previously created.
* on a machine with E:/Program Files/PostgreSQL created and the service user
created with permissions set to full control
I got the following message:
Failed to run initdb: 1!
Please see the logfile in "E:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.1\tmp\initdb.log
The log file:
creating directory E:/ProgramFiles/PostgreSQL/8.1/data/global ... initdb:
could not create directory "E:/Program Files": File exists
initdb: removing contents of data directory
The odd thing is that this log entry happens even when the PostgresSQL
folder was not present before the install program ran. What would cause the
install program to be able to create the PostgresSQL directory during one
step and then not be able to create other directories later?
Searching the archives, it appears that others have had this problem in the
past and it was a permissions problem, but as I stated before, I tried
creating the service account before the install and granting it full control
of the install dir and it still did not work.
Anyone have any ideas?
