Database in read-only mode under System Diagnostic Dashboard (2146543)

  • 0 Ratings


  • Database shows read only mode though we can make changes to vIDM configurations:

    • Change entitlement
    • Add/Remove Users /Groups/application, and so on.
  • Under SaaS Database Properties, the Database Read-Only is set to False.
  • In the horizon.log file, you see entries similar to:

    ERROR (main) [;;] com.vmware.horizon.datastore.impl.DbConnectionCheckServiceImpl - Error connecting the database There is already an object named 'id_pkey' in the database. at


This issue is resolved in VMware Identity Manager 2.7, available at VMware Downloads.

To work around to this issue if you do not want to upgrade, drop the Temporary table.
Important: Take a backup of the database before making any changes.

  1. To find the temporary table, run the script:


        OBJECT_NAME(OBJECT_ID) AS NameofConstraint

            ,SCHEMA_NAME(schema_id) AS SchemaName

            ,OBJECT_NAME(parent_object_id) AS TableName

            ,type_desc AS ConstraintType

        FROM sys.objects

        WHERE type_desc LIKE '%CONSTRAINT'

  2. Replace XYZ with id_pkey.
