  • you've stumbled over a bug in that the df command used in the test ended up line wrapping because of the length of volume group where /tmp is located. I've filed a issue internally. Fortunately, the file /opt/vertica/oss/python/lib/python2.7/site-packages/vertica/network/SSH.py is readable and you can apply a workaround manually to move forward until we are able to push out the fix. The workaround is to simply add the POSIX output flag for portability to the df command in the test. Edit /opt/vertica/oss/python/lib/python2.7/site-packages/vertica/network/SSH.py on cnode1 and goto line 1982. Change the command: df /tmp | tail -1 | awk '{print $4}' to df -P /tmp | tail -1 | awk '{print $4}' save and rerun the installer from cnode1.
  • thank you That fixed the problem nicely
  • Is this issue fixed in any of the latest releases of Vertica?

  • This issue was fixed in versions of vertica 6.1.X and higher released after June 2013
