Issue/Introduction

We are installing vertica and we are getting an error:

verticadba is not the primary group

How can we fix this?

Cause

Vertica requires the database administrator user to be a member of the verticadba group and that this group be the primary group for the user.

Environment

Release : 3.x

Component : IM Reporting / Admin / Configuration

Resolution

Set the primary group for the database admin to verticadba using usermod

usermod -g verticadba dradmin

Log out and back in to refresh the shell and see the changes.

Additional Information

man usermod

For details of the usermod command.
