Unable to create database

There are no databases after completing installation of vertica MC and db. When I tried to create, it shows error json object could not be loaded, getHosts. Any help?

  • Hi Raghav,

    Could you please send the complete error you are getting, is it Vertica 7 ?
    You can paste the error message you see in admintools-root logs and admintools-dba logs
  • Hi Shobhit,
                             This was in the log, and yes its vertica 7. I am using Ubuntu 12.04.

  • It says "No such license file /opt/vertica/config/share/license.key". 
    You can fix it by 
    cp /opt/vertica/config/licensing/vertica_community_edition.license.key /opt/vertica/config/share/license.key
