Dear postgres Folk,
I am able to start the pgAgent in debug mode on a windows (server 2016)
machine with the help of
C:\Program Files (x86)\pgAgent\bin>pgagent.exe DEBUG "host=localhost
port=5432 user=postgres dbname=postgres password=********"
I also tested that I can start jobs through pgAdmin III.
Starting a service from services in Windows fails with a generic message.
If I login as postgres user
runas /user:postgres cmd
and then try to start the service there using the same command as in
C:\Program Files (x86)\pgAgent\bin>pgagent.exe RUN pgAgent
"host=localhost port=5432 user=postgres dbname=postgres password=*******"
I get an error
ERROR: Couldn't register event handle.
(which is what I suppose the service does) How can I solve the issue?
(supplying a password over command line is not a problem. We have
successfully tested different approaches including pgpass and pg_hba
successfully. I am trying to nail down why the service does not start in a
regular way here).
I believe that the version of pgAgent is 1.22.
I posted this question also on
