Nagios XI - ERROR: PostgresQL not running - exiting

Problem Description

This anomaly will rarely occur during a VM set up of Nagios XI.

The following is an example of what it may look like:

cp: cannot create regular file `/usr/local/nagiosxi/scripts': 
 Read-only file system
cp: cannot create regular file `/usr/local/nagiosxi/scripts':
 Read-only file system
chown: cannot access `/usr/local/nagiosxi/scripts/reset_config_perms': No such file or directory
chown: cannot access `/usr/local/nagiosxi/scripts/reset_config_perms.sh': No such file or directory
chmod: cannot access `/usr/local/nagiosxi/scripts/reset_config_perms': No such file or directory
chmod: cannot access `/usr/local/nagiosxi/scripts/reset_config_perms.sh': No such file or directory
/tmp/nagiosxi
Checking PostgresQL status...
ERROR: PostgresQL not running - exiting.
ERROR: Nagios XI database was not setup properly - exiting.

 

You may try restarting the server but in some cases will have to start the Nagios XI install from the beginning.
