Problem in migrating server

I'm migrating Alfresco Community 4.0.b from Server 1 to Server 2. Both are Ubuntu Server 10.04. I have followed the instruction from wiki, http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/System_Migration, and I used binary installation file to install Alfresco on both server.

Database back up and restore code:
pg_dump -U postgres -h localhost -p 5432 -F c -v -f "alfresco_db" alfresco
pg_restore -U postgres -h localhost -p 5432 -C -d postgres -v alfresco_db
When starting Alfresco on Server 2, I get this following error:

Did I miss something? Any help would be very appreciated.

Thank you.
