embedded DB failed to start during installation of Cloudera Manager following Installation Path A

New Contributor

Hello,
I am trying to install the latest version Cloudera Manager following the Installation Path A - Automated Installation by Cloudera Manager (Non-Production Mode) as per link below:
http://www.cloudera.com/documentation/enterprise/latest/topics/cm_ig_install_path_a.html#cmig_topic_...
I am installing it on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.4 (Santiago)
The installation process goes smoothly until it comes to start-embedded-db step. I tried to redo steps by removing the files manually, but with no success. Please help.

 

Here is the content of : /var/log/cloudera-manager-installer/6.start-embedded-db.log
The files belonging to this database system will be owned by user "cloudera-scm".
This user must also own the server process.
The database cluster will be initialized with locale en_US.UTF8.
The default text search configuration will be set to "english".
fixing permissions on existing directory /var/lib/cloudera-scm-server-db/data ... ok
creating subdirectories ... ok
selecting default max_connections ... 100
selecting default shared_buffers ... 32MB
creating configuration files ... ok
creating template1 database in /var/lib/cloudera-scm-server-db/data/base/1 ... ok

Success. You can now start the database server using:
postgres -D /var/lib/cloudera-scm-server-db/data
or
pg_ctl -D /var/lib/cloudera-scm-server-db/data -l logfile start
Adding configs
Creating SCM configuration file: /etc/cloudera-scm-server/db.properties
waiting for server to start...............................................................could not start server
Could not start database server, giving up


Thanks and Regards,

Do you find something related error in the postgres logs that's located under /var/lib/cloudera-scm-server-db/data/pg_log/?
