Hi to all,

During a vacuum, the message below appeared after some time doing the
command.

FATAL 2:  InitRelink(logfile 347 seg 167) failed: Operation not permitted
/usr/bin/postmaster: Startup proc 22070 exited with status 512 - abort

The postmaster bombs out, and when trying to reinit, it gives again the
error.  The setup is as follows, the pg_xlog is situated on another PC (win
2000) mounted using samba.

Solution to start the postmaster was to move the pg_xlog directory to
another empty one, and then user pg_resetxlog to create a new WAL log file.

Can anyone explain what this error means, and if there are any solutions ?

Regards
Robert
