Unable to read database catalogs

Hi all,

What can possibly cause the following error "Unable to read database catalogs".
The file exists and it has the correct permission. Even when I try to go back to last good epoch it keeps giving me this error. Attempting to start the database with Force or in Unsafe mode did not succeed either.

Your help is appreciated!

    Do you have ip tables turned on? Can you share me /opt/vertica/log/admintools.log

  • Thanks for the reply.

    No IP tables are off. Sorry, I do not have the log file since we had to do kickstart to recover the setup.
