psql command:

[enterprisedb@testing_ppas93]$ psql -h localhost -p 9999 -d postgres
psql: server closed the connection unexpectedly
        This probably means the server terminated abnormally
        before or while processing the request

I use pgpool II to control failover event between two servers (master on google cloud, slave on my local, centos x64, database: Postgres Plus Advanced Server 9.3). When I try to connect my database via port 9999 (example: psql -h localhost -p 9999 -d postgres) , pgpool raises the error

ERROR: Unable to read message length

About errors above, because of the connection between pgpool and slave server, if I change slave's pg_hba.conf for pgpool host from md5 to trust, it work fine.

Two ways to fix:

  1. ssh config among: pgpool, slave, master .
  2. set up trust method in pg_hba.conf for pgpool .
