Hi All,
Im not quite sure where the most appropriate place to post this question is.
I had posted it to the novice list yesterday however I think this list may
be better suited to addressing the issue. Ive copied the msg below.

I did two upgrades from 8.1.0 to 8.1.3 on two servers that are pretty much
identical (winserver 2003).

On one the install went fine. On the other, Ive lost the ability to connect
thur tcp/ip.

On the successfuly upgraded machiene (lets call it serverA, the unsuccessful
upgrade machiene we'll call serverB) I notice that in the windows services
panel, under the properties for my postgresql service, the path to
executable is as follows:

C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.1\bin/pg_ctl.exe runservice -N "postgreswin32"
-D "C:/Program Files/PostgreSQL/8.1/data"  -o "-i"

on server b the path is as follows:

"C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.1\bin\pg_ctl.exe" runservice -N "pgsql-8.1"
-D "I:\warehouse\data\"

I notice that the postmaster options arnt specified in serverb's path. 

I have tried to change serverb's path to include the tcp/ip option for
postmaster. when I add -o "-i" to serverb's path, postgres will start, but I
can't login. I get the following msg at the command prompt:

>C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.1\bin>psql warehouse
>psql: FATAL:  invalid command-line arguments for server process
>HINT:  Try "postgres --help" for more information.

Can anyone tell me what is going on here? Why wont serverB's installation of
postgres accept -o "-i"? 
Could this be some sort of bug? Or perhaps the solution is simple but eludes

Any suggestions would be great!
