Vertica 7.1.1 unable to open adminTools

I am having same issues as previous posts.  But I am unable to determine exactly the problem.


Executing opt/vertica/bin/adminTools simply returns with no error.  From previous posts on this issue, I checked permissions on admintools.conf, but the owner is dbadmin.


The only thing in a log I could tell might some relevance was in the adminTools-dbadmin.log.

Apr  2 18:58:25  [2972] [isOkToRun] owner of admintools.conf (dbauser) is dbadmin.


Not sure what to else to check, or try.

     Are you attempting to run admnitools as the dbadmin user, or as some other user (root?).


    Try running admintools as the dbadmin user.

    Also, I see that you are maybe running in a docker container? I don't believe that dockers are supported and the issue that you are seeing may be related to the docker.


    You can download a VM of Vertica from http://my.vertica.com.

    This is entirely my fault.  I switched from the Docker container and did a straight up Vertica install and I was able to getting a running VMart example.
