I am trying to connect a Postgres database which resides in a docker installed on Ubuntu virtual machine. Following exception is being thrown on the console.

org.postgresql.util.PSQLException: FATAL: no pg_hba.conf entry for host "10.1.X.X", user "usrXXX", database "dbXXX", SSL off

After going through various posts, I realised that I have to update pg_hba.conf file. I have modified the file to include the following settings.

host dbXXX usrXXX 10.1.X.X/32 trust

(Note I tried with md5 as well.)

I verified the postgres database settings through psql and executed commands as specified in this post. This verified that I am editing correct file. To take a step further, I also verified the entry through pgAdmin (pgAdmin is installed locally on postgres host) and found the following query is returning records as entered in pg_hba.conf

table pg_hba_file_rules;

Not sure where I am going wrong. Here is the preview of how everything is deployed.

  • Just to add on : Keycloak is able to make a connection, create tables and insert data :( It's the Springboot application sitting on another laptop getting an error. – CuriousMind Nov 15 '18 at 10:11
  • You have /32 on the end of the network address: only that host will be let in. – Colin 't Hart Nov 15 '18 at 11:59
  • You most likely specified the wrong source pattern. This can be a problem when working with NAT and Proxies. I would start with and go from there. (And never use trust or ident for remote tcp) – eckes Nov 15 '18 at 12:01
  • @eckes tried with CIDR too, but that didn't work. I know trust is bad, but I am trying to figure out if the application can at least make a connection first. Once it is able to, I will update the settings. – CuriousMind Nov 15 '18 at 12:34
  • @Colin'tHart unfortunately that host is not able to connect and thats valid CIDR :( – CuriousMind Nov 15 '18 at 12:35
