    Ok, So I have a Mac Pro With now 10.7.3.. Here Goes Nothing...
    I've Cloned the original & broke DNS.. Fixed it by redo of OD, PostgreSQL is either nonexistent or broken, PG admin gives me the middle finger, I can'y wipe a DB that doesn't exist. I've Tried EVERYTHING I've found in the forums, Apple Just shrugs, I DO NOT WANT TO REINSTALL>> this is production environment. <<
    All I want is for profile manager to work, Somehow, I need to bring postgres to back to original. I might add that things went funky after i "upgraded"
    I've tried to wipe
    I've fixed ACL, Which by the way, is not easy when you're running it RAID, because disk util. is useless..
    I don't want to wipe, because all the user permissions & ACL's I have built will be dicked...
    DOES ANYONE know how to default postgres, without a wipe ?

    I'm using postgresql from macports, works flawlessly, what am I doing wrong?

    I hope you see your problem now.

    I hate to tell you he's right. Without doing a proper backup and testing the upgrade with cloned db on another machine; upgrading a production machine is dangerous without proper QA. Everyone learns the tough way though, just gotta go at it and change your upgrade workflow next time.
