  1. On the Linux machine where you plan to install Acronis Management Server, install PostgreSQL:
    Make sure you install PostgreSQL version 9.2 or later.
    1. Install PostgreSQL:
      • on RedHat/Fedora/CentOS install as described in this manual. Additionally, install contrib modules:
        # yum install postgresql-server postgresql-contrib
      • on Debian/Ubuntu Linux install by issuing:
        # sudo apt-get install postgresql postgresql-contrib
    2. Initialize database:
      # service postgresql initdb
    3. Start PostgreSQL:
      # service postgresql start
  2. Install Acronis Management Server of Acronis Cyber Backup 12.5 as described in this manual.
  3. Stop services:
    # service acronis_ams stop
    # service acronis_asm stop
    # service acronis_zmqgw stop
  4. Download and unpack this package. Copy all files from this package to /var/lib/Acronis/AMS/postgresql
  5. Open /etc/Acronis/AMS.config in an editor and change
    <value name="AmsDmlDbProtocol" type="TString">"config:///var/lib/Acronis/AMS/dml.config"</value>
    <value name="AmsDmlDbProtocol" type="TString">"config:///var/lib/Acronis/AMS/postgresql/dml_postgresql.config"</value>
    Save changes and exit editor.
  6. Download and unpack this ams_postgres.exe tool. Place the tool into /usr/lib/Acronis/AMS/ams_postgres
  7. Run the ams_postgres tool:
    # chmod a+x /usr/lib/Acronis/AMS/ams_postgres
    # /usr/lib/Acronis/AMS/ams_postgres
  8. If you are using build 7048, Update 1 (Build 7641), Update 1 HF1(Build 7970): download and unpack libabr_ams.so and replace /usr/lib/Acronis/AMS/libabr_ams.so with the downloaded one.

    If you are using Update 2 (Build 8610) or later, skip this step.

  9. Start services:
    # service acronis_asm start
    # service acronis_ams start
    # service acronis_zmqgw start

Now you can use Acronis Management Server with PostgreSQL.
