I attempted to install from postgresql-8.0-beta2-dev3.msi, got to the end, and it failed with a message: Failed to create process for initdb: 1385. I am a local administrator and I used a custom service account and a custom su account.


I then fired up my dev environment and wrote some code to discover that 1385 is: Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer. So I added the service account to the Administrators group, and got the attached warning/error about using an account that’s a member of the Admninistrators group. Hmm, this install is quite a challenge for a Windowz box ;-). So I used another local service account, but got a user/password failure notification – which is strange since it uses the same password as the other account (so the install cleared the internal password variable after changing the userId but not the password input box). So I added the service account to the lsa privs: Log on as a batch job, log on as a service, and Act as part of the operating system (in case calling LogonUser), and got the same errors. Strange, that during the original install, it detected a missing priv and claimed to add it (I thought it was log on as a service) but when I went to add it, it wasn’t there.


So I bagged the service install and went with a regular install. Went to start the service, and got scolded for being a member of the Administrators group. Oh well, I guess it’s not my day.  ;-)
