[postgis-users] create spatial table problem

Hi Tom,

If your table was enabled to have oids, the SQL would have a trailing ... "WITH OIDS;" option added to the CREATE TABLE command.  i.e:

create table hydromet_stations (
 id serial primary key,
 stnid text,
 portfurl text,
 graphurl text,
 sensormlurl text,
 organization text

I guess pg_dumpall doesn't replicate this part of the environment.

Also, in postgresql.conf there is a setting that, I think you can enable to have oids by default when new tables are created.  

#default_with_oids = off
