Hi all

I have set my authentication to

# "local" is for Unix domain socket connections only
local   all         all                               md5 #ident sameuser

for security reasons

this leads to this problem when trying to run a script:

30-Mar 17:47 collab-dir: BeforeJob: run command 
"/etc/bacula/scripts/make_catalog_backup bacula postgres 
30-Mar 17:47 collab-dir: BeforeJob: pg_dump: [archiver (db)] connection 
to database "bacula" failed: FATAL: Ident authentication failed for user 

how does one pass an md5 encrypted pw to postgres? I tried it with clear 
as well, but that failed too. Not happy doing that anyway.

many thanks in advance
