[Solved] Enterprise geodatabase on PostgreSQL backup and restore

ziggy Asks: Enterprise geodatabase on PostgreSQL backup and restore
windows 7, PostgreSQL 9.4/ArcSDE/PostGIS backend database that I am transferring to another computer.

My backup command is as follows. host 5433

pg_dumpall -h localhost -p 5433 -U postgres -c -f "file.backup"

backups up all nice and everything.

when I go to restore it on windows 10, PostgreSQL 9.4, port 5433 I run

psql -h localhost -p 5433 -U postgres -f file.backup

so everything restores okay. All tables, schemas, logins are good. I can connect with QGIS and everything works fine.


When I go to add an ArcGIS database connection I get this error

enter image description here


I uninstalled postgres on the new computer reinstalled 9.5, ran psql -h localhost -p 5432 -U postgres -f file.backup on port 5432 and in the CMD I found 1 error it should while it is running the restore

psql:R:/Data/LUCZ_2017/blah.backup:12531010: ERROR:  relation "gdb_items" does not exist

whats going on here!

Based on Evan Carroll’s suggestion I ran

C:Program FilesPostgreSQL9.5bin>psql duS+
psql: FATAL:  password authentication failed for user "rizagha"

the CMD wouldn’t let me enter my password, I pressed enter and received the above error
