Strange directory structure in vertica-client-7.2.1



we upgraded our database to the latest version 7.2.1 and everything went smooth. After upgrading client packages we noticed a strange directory structure in vertica-client-7.2.1:



Our apps started complaining becuase of a missing /opt/vertica/lib64/ so we had to hack a symlink solution.


Previous packages did not have "double" /opt/vertica directories. Is this a bug or is there an actual reason for such structure?


Thanks in advance,



  • Hi,


    Yes. This is a bug and is being addressed in the next service pack (7.2.SP2)




  • Perfect, thanks for a quick response.


    Do you have estimate for relase date of 7.2.SP2?


    Thanks in advance,
