VCPG-67-000016 - VMware Postgres must write log entries to disk prior to returning operation success or failure - synchronous_commit
Failure to a known state can address safety or security in accordance with the mission/business needs of the organization. Failure to a known secure state helps prevent a loss of confidentiality, integrity, or availability in the event of a failure of the information system or a component of the system. Preserving information system state information helps to facilitate system restart and return to the operational mode of the organization with less disruption of mission/business processes. Because it is usually not possible to test this capability in a production environment, systems should be validated either in a testing environment or prior to installation. This is usually a function of the design of the IDPS component. Compliance can be verified by acceptance/validation processes or vendor attestation.
At the command prompt, execute the following commands: # /opt/vmware/vpostgres/current/bin/psql -U postgres -c 'ALTER SYSTEM SET <name> TO 'on';' # /opt/vmware/vpostgres/current/bin/psql -U postgres -c 'SELECT pg_reload_conf();' Note: Substitute <name> with the incorrectly set parameter (fsync, full_page_writes, synchronous_commit)
