Surround SCM Server Cannot Connect to PostgreSQL Databases After Upgrading to Mac OS X 10.10

Article ID: 736  |  Last updated: 22 Dec, 2014


The Surround SCM Server cannot connect to PostgreSQL databases after upgrading the server computer to Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite).


The Mac OS X 10.10 upgrade automatically removes empty PostgreSQL directories, which are required to run the PostgreSQL server.


Create the required PostgreSQL directories, set permissions, and restart the PostgreSQL server.

  1. In Terminal, enter the following commands. You will be prompted to enter your password.
    sudo mkdir /usr/local/pgsql/data/pg_tblspc
    sudo mkdir /usr/local/pgsql/data/pg_twophase
    sudo chown postgres:daemon /usr/local/pgsql/data/pg_tblspc
    sudo chown postgres:daemon /usr/local/pgsql/data/pg_twophase
    sudo chmod 700 /usr/local/pgsql/data/pg_tblspc
    sudo chmod 700 /usr/local/pgsql/data/pg_twophase
    sudo sppostgres stop
    sudo sppostgres start
  2. Restart the Surround SCM Server. The server now can connect to PostgreSQL databases.
