NetVault Plug-in for MySQL 11.1 - Release Notes

Upgrade and compatibility

Upgrades and new installs of MySQL®: As explained in Bug 68807 for MySQL,, mysql_install_db ignores /etc/my.cnf in MySQL 5.6. Because MySQL 5.6 creates InnoDB statistic tables (slave_master_info, mysql/slave_relay_log_info, innodb_index_stats, innodb_table_stats, and slave_worker_info) and adds them to the installation directory (basedir) of MySQL, you might encounter a conflict with the innodb_data_file_path = ibdata1:2000M;ibdata2:10M:autoextend option contained in the “my.cnf” file. The file_path option places the InnoDB files one directory level higher than the basedir, which can cause the following error to appear in the MySQL error log:
Until you address this error, the plug-in cannot browse the main MySQL database, and the following error appears: "Failed to fetch row from query result: showtable status like 'innodb\_index\_stats'"
Because this option originated from a recommended sample “my.cnf” file for an earlier version of MySQL, this issue usually occurs on upgrades or new installs that retained the earlier version of the “my.cnf” file. Dell recommends that you do not use the file_path option on new installations and that you move the ibdata files to basedir for upgrades. For assistance, contact MySQL Support. (22367)
