    Default Metasploit Auto-Exploitation (ruby postgres plugin)


    when I execute
    db_nmap -p 445
    I get the following:
    Error while running command db_nmap: FATAL C28000 Mno PostgreSQL user name specified in startup packet Fpostmaster.c L1528 RProcessStartupPacket

    db_create seems to work fine (tables are created)

    I'm not quite sure about the ruby-postgres plugin installation though as I get an error when I do this check :
    ruby -e 'require "rubygems"; gem "postgres";'
    c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:304:in `report_activate_error': Could
    not find RubyGem postgres (>= 0.0.0) (Gem::LoadError)
    from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:238:in `activate'
    from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:76:in `active_gem_with_o
    from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:50:in `gem'
    from -e:1

    Could you help if it's a database setting problem or something wrong with the ruby-postgres plugin installation ?

    Thanks for all suggestions


    (the gem install ruby-postgres command's output seems ok :
    Successfully installed ruby-postgres-
    but the gem install postgres command produces an error :

    ERROR: While executing gem ... (Gem::Installer::ExtensionBuildError)

    Could not create Makefile due to some reason, probably lack of

    details. You may need configuration options.)

    After your run db_create are you able to connect to and query the DB?
