Docker with Thingworx + PostgreSQL fails to start

Hi!

 

I am struggling a lot with OOTB Docker images which PTC provides for Thingworx 8.4 & PostgreSQL setup.

What I am trying to do is to run Docker containers on my Ubuntu 18.04 Virtual Machine.

 

Everything seems to be installed correctly, but it fails to start with this error log:

Re: Docker with Thingworx + PostgreSQL fails to start

Actually I found a solution.

According to the doc those variables:

      - "TWX_DATABASE_USERNAME=twadmin"
      - "TWX_DATABASE_SCHEMA=thingworx

NEED TO BE THE SAME. I changed it for thingworx everywhere and it is working like a charm.

I have no idea why there are 2 variables exposed, but only one value can be assign to both in one time.

 

Nevertheless that resolved my issue.

Re: Docker with Thingworx + PostgreSQL fails to start

Hello,

 

Since it cannot find the relation, it looks like the database schema didn't initialize correctly. I suggest looking earlier in the docker-compose log, up to the point where it executes /docker-entrypoint-initdb.d/db-setup.sh

Constantine
