Not able to run scm_prepare_database.sh script

Explorer

I am using PostgreSQL for the Cloudera Manager Server and other services that use databases. I'm using a RHEL 7.4 Azure VM and following the official documentation -https://docs.cloudera.com/documentation/enterprise/6/6.3/topics/prepare_cm_database.html

I have completed step 4(Install Databases). In Step 5 : Set up the Cloudera Manager Database, on executing the scm_prepare_database.sh script I'm getting the following output-

  

[root@machine1 ~]# sudo /opt/cloudera/cm/schema/scm_prepare_database.sh postgresql scm scm

I had logged into postgres using # sudo -u postgres psql. 

Please help. Thanks in advance.

@Shelton I had to install ident server, also I had changed the ip address in the line-

host all all 127.0.0.1/32 md5 so changed it back to 127.0.0.1. Thanks.

@tanishq1197 

I think your syntax is wrong  because you have initiated a connection using the below snippet

# sudo -u postgres psql

 The correct syntax is  without need of prior log on

$ sudo /opt/cloudera/cm/schema/scm_prepare_database.sh [options] <databaseType> <databaseName> <databaseUser> <password>

Substituting the correct value s the below should run successfully with the default user/password scm/scm

$ sudo /opt/cloudera/cm/schema/scm_prepare_database.sh postgresql scm scm scm 

Assuming you intend to use the derby databases postgres please see Setting up the Cloudera Manager Database

Hope that helps

Hi @Shelton,

 

Thanks for the response. I have tried with the following syntax-

$ sudo /opt/cloudera/cm/schema/scm_prepare_database.sh [options] <databaseType> <databaseName> <databaseUser> <password>

 but the output remains the same.

Please can you copy and paste here exactly the command you run?

@Shelton 

 

sudo /opt/cloudera/cm/schema/scm_prepare_database.sh postgresql scm scm

 

And in the next line I was prompted for password.

The Password should be the scm password

Enter SCM password:

The default is SCM that should progress successfully

CREATE ROLE <user> LOGIN PASSWORD '<password>';

CREATE DATABASE <database> OWNER <user> ENCODING 'UTF8';

 

I had changed the password using the above commands for each database, I have anyways tried with the default password "scm" as well, the error still persists.

I think I did a typo error  previously there was an extra scm the below should run successfully 

sudo /opt/cloudera/cm/schema/scm_prepare_database.sh postgresql scm scm
