I scanned the centos libraries, and the lowest version of postgres that had
consistent package versions was 13. There was no libpq at the version 12
level in the centos RPM library.
I performed the manual installation process for the postgresql database at
the *Initializing the PostgreSQL Database* at
, using version 13 instead of version 12.
On completion of database configuration, engine-setup reports:
[root@ovirt1 engine.conf.d]# engine-setup
