Hi Michael_Highguy,

To resolve the issue, could you please go to the “Connect to Server” window and specify the path to your PostgreSQL bin folder at the “Advanced settings”?

Here is what I did:

  1. We are using the remote windows backup server to backup instances from Linux machines
  2. I just downloaded the zip package of postgres and took the bin directory to any place and provided that directory in advanced tab of connection
  3. After that I tried to backup and got

11/5/2019 12:55:32 PM [Error] Failed to backup “postgres” database with “Full” backup type: C:\Users\michael.hi\Downloads\postgresql-12.0-1-windows-x64-binaries\pgsql\bin\pg_dump.exe process has finished with “1” code. The error message: “C:\Users\michael.hi\Downloads\postgresql-12.0-1-windows-x64-binaries\pgsql\bin\pg_dump.exe: illegal option – oids
Try “pg_dump --help” for more information.”.

  1. I unticked the object identifiers option and everything worked like a charm.

The question is: is it the bug or feature :slight_smile:

Hi Michael_Highguy,

Yes, this is the feature. We have added this parameter to avoid the issue when some versions of pg_dump support this parameter and some do not.
