Re: Installing and Configuring the Postgres Plugin

Andy,

Did you install the plugin similar to how it is described here?:  nt-ap.com/1weKkJm

I think the Postgres should be installed into scAgent/plugins/native/<plugin>

Hope the link will help.

Re: Installing and Configuring the Postgres Plugin

Andy,

Since adding the POSTGRES plugin have you restarted your Snap Creator Agent?

The plugins are loaded when the Agent starts - That tripped me up when I set mine up just now.

I just glanced at that plugin and it is a perl plugin, so it should be installed:

/path/to/scAgent4.1.0/plugins/perl/POSTGRES/POSTGRES.PM

Case is important, so the plugin must be named POSTGRES and the APP_NAME=POSTGRES

I downloaded the plugin, copied into the location above, then restarted my Agent is all is working.

Hope this helps,

John
