vertica-ce init script

vertica's init.d script (/etc/init.d/verticad) is using rpm -q vertica to find out if vertica is installed, which does not work for community edition, because the rpm package is called vertica-ce


  • Changing the line to rpm -q vertica-ce in /etc/init.d/verticad and /etc/init.d/vertica_agent apparently fixes the problem.
  • Hi Libor Thank you for posting the solution to the forum, we have noted this as a defect and it will be addressed in our next release of the product.
