Installing UD Probe 11.30 stuck at "creating database"

This has had my head scratching for a while...

I am unable to install the UD probe version 11.30, straight from the partner's portal. It always gets stuck at "Creating Dataflow probe database schemas".
And by stuck I mean 8-hours stuck on that.
I've tried on the same server where previously was the 11.22 and ucmdb, on another server, on a freshly installed VM, while standing upside down, and singing kumbaya.... No luck.


postgressql.log shows only this:

(only these 4 lines)



Running C:\hp\UCMDB\DataFlowProbe\tools\dbscripts\createProbeDBs.cmd at Tue 03/21/2017 16:48:06.05

(just this ONE line). It has started at 21th march, 4:48 PM, and is now 22nd march, 10:45am and still no development.... ARGH.

Any new ideas?

Re: Installing UD Probe 11.30 stuck at "creating database"

After reading some other threads on possibly related Issues, I came across this:


Probe cannot be started after installation if any of the following special characters are included in the PostgreSQL user account password: ? | & ) %



Thing is, the probe installer FORCES you to use one of the following special characters in installation:


So you have a good chance (5 in 17, or 30%) of choosing one of those. Which I did. (%)

Change the password to use underscore, and it finished correctly.

For the record, the ACTUAL safestring is:

, \ : / . _ = + - [ ] (


Seriously HP?
