Connect to tr database

Connect to tr database

Connect to tr database

Hi Guys,

I am using IPOCC 10.1.2 .
I want to connect to the tr database to get some info. I am using ODBC 32bit . the problem that i have is that i get invalid password for Administrator. and I am sure I enter the corect password because I can use pgbackup to backup ipocc..
Is there a new way of doing it for latest version of ipocc ?

RE: Connect to tr database

Are you connecting from the IPOCC server or from another server?
As default remote connections aren't allowed to the database.

RE: Connect to tr database

Directly from IPOCC Server.

I ussualy use Excel to connect to ODBC Datasource..so I first create a DSN with ODBC 32bit and then use Excel for Data import.
I haven't installed excel yet but I see that I can use user postgress with no password to connect to the tr database with odbc 32bit :|

RE: Connect to tr database

The IPOCC installation should already have created an ODBC connection to the TR database called TRS-DSN which you would use.
The postgres user is trusted on the local server so it should always be able to connect without password.

You might also need to use localhost and not the IP of the server when creating a new ODBC.

RE: Connect to tr database


I had to get an avaya tech to reset my db admin password:D

Ok so I am using localhost to get a successfull connection, though I would also like in the feature to connect from another pc.
When I put the IP addr of IPOCC server i get an error : FATAL: no pg_hba.conf entry for host, user "Administrator"
database tr, SSL off
.. Which for me means that Administrator dosen't have rights (sort of speak - I am an amateur on databases) .

RE: Connect to tr database

You're only allowed to connect from localhost ( to the database as default.

If you want to connect from another PC you need to allow that in the C:\ProgramData\Avaya\PostgreSQL\9.3\pg_hba.conf and restart the services.
The line below would allow you to access from with any login.

host all all md5

You could also specify which user is allowed to connect.

RE: Connect to tr database

Thank you for this info janni..
I remember trying this on an ipocc server but what I did was to mess up everything.
I will try it on a test system and check it out.

Sorry for delayed reponse :)
