    Hi,

     

    The message itself is harmless, so there is something else causing it to not start.  Please upload the postgres log here.  Also see this link below on that message.

     

    PostgreSQL: could not create IPv6 socket (AI_ADDRCONFIG) 

     

    If anyone else has experienced this before, please feel free to add your input.

     

    Regards,
    Matt
