Issues with admin suite


I have installed postgreSQL 9.6.1 and I am able to connect to the database via psql and pgAdmin but I have no luck with admin suite.

I am getting the error message: Failed to connect to database!
MLifter.Generics.ServerOfflineException: Eine Ausnahme vom Typ "´MLifter.Generics.ServerOfflineException" wurde ausgelöst.
bei MLifter.BusinessLayer.FolderIndexEntry.Login(IUser user)
bei MLifter.BusinessLayer.LearningModulesIndex.GetFolderOfConnection(IConnectionString connection)
be SecurityAdminSuite.Facade.ctor()

In DebugView of sysinternal I am getting this message if I start admin suite:

My gp_hga.conf contains:


IPv4 local & remote connections:

host all all trust
host all all trust

IPv6 local connections:

host all all ::1/128 trust
host all all ::0/0 trust

This should allow alle connections from ip v4 and ip v6.

What can be the reason that admin suite cannot connect to the database?

I have an additional information for this issue.

I have given the user access rights to the memoryLifter program folder.
After I have started the admin suite with this user a file with name: AdminSuiteTrace.log was generated.

In this file had following content::

function GetUserList() does not exist
Severity: ERROR

bei MLifter.BusinessLayer.FolderIndexEntry.Login(IUser user)

It seems that MemoryLIfter is not compatible to PostgreSQL 9.6.1.

I have now uninstalled the postgreSQL 9.6.1 and have installed the older version postgreSQL 9.2.19.
Unfortunately I get now the same error.

did you execute the "MemoryLifterServerDatabaseScript.sql" script in your DB?


rupp0000 wrote Dec 14, 2016 at 7:30 AM

Yes, I have executed the script. But the function GetUserList is not in the memoryLifter database.

I have repeated the execution of the script and there was an error message during creating of the function GetUserList:

                SELECT username, user_type FROM "UserProfiles" WHERE user_type != 'LocalDirectoryAuthentication';
        ERROR:  language "SQL" does not exist

rupp0000 wrote Dec 14, 2016 at 7:36 AM

I changed no the 'SQL' into 'sql' and I was able to create the function.

Then I was able to start the admin suite.

Thank you for the hint to the script.

Please adapt the SQL script and change the 'SQL' into 'sql'.

Here is the whole part for the GetUserList function which works:
        SELECT username, user_type FROM "UserProfiles" WHERE user_type != 'LocalDirectoryAuthentication';

Ah, thanks for the info. Will change that for the future...
