PostgreSQL configuration

If you get these error messages in the log:

Note.jpg psql: FATAL: no pg_hba.conf entry for host "::1", user "postgres", database "postgres", SSL off

The pipe has been ended

when you restore a backup or create a new IMSMA database you need to update C:\IMSMAng\pgsql\data\pg_hba.conf with a text editor.


  1. Open the file C:\IMSMAng\pgsql\data\pg_hba.conf with a text editor e.g. Notepad
  2. Delete the # on row 86 and save the file
  3. Restart the PGSQL service

If you do not have any text editor installed you may download the file (need to be unzipped).


If you need to create shortcuts on the desktop:

Target = C:\IMSMAng\trayLauncher\IMSMA.exe
Start in = c:\IMSMAng\trayLauncher
Icon = %SystemDrive%\IMSMAng\client\images\new_IMSMAin24.ico
Do not forget to set Run as administrator.
Target = C:\IMSMARE\webapp\show.bat
Start in = c:\IMSMARE\webapp
Icon = %SystemDrive%\IMSMARE\webapp\resources\public\images\new_IMSMAin24.ico
Also for IMSMA RE it is recommended using Run as administrator.
Target = C:\IMSMAETLTool\bin\etl.exe
Start in = C:\IMSMAETLTool
Icon = %SystemDrive%\IMSMAETLTool\icons\new_IMSMAin24.ico
Also for SAG it is recommended using Run as administrator.
