WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Change management in IT is critical. But, even with a good change management process, changes are too often not correctly tracked, if at all. The configuration of your servers and applications is a key factor in their performance, availability, and security. Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

Overview

You cannot register a read-only MySQL database in DPA. An error message displays stating that the user does not have enough privileges.

Environment

  • DPA 10.1

Cause

DPA requires that the monitoring user has updated privileges on the MySQL Performance Schema database.

Resolution

Register a MySQL database that is not read-only.

 

  1. Click Options > Register for Monitoring.
  2. Click MySQL, and click Next.
  3. Complete the Register Instance Wizard.

 

Stop monitoring on the MySQL database, and edit the MYSQL_PERFORMANCE_SCHEMA advanced option so DPA does not update the MySQL Performance Schema.

 

  1. On the DPA home page, click Action > Stop Monitor next to the MySQL database.
  2. Click Options > Administration > Advanced Options.
  3. Click the DB Instance Options tab, and select the read-only MySQL database from the Database Instance list.
  4. Click the MYSQL_PERFORMANCE_SCHEMA option.
  5. From the New Value list, select Leave MySQL as it is, and click Update.

 

Update the connection to point to a read-only MySQL database, and start monitoring on the MySQL database. This operation does not require the monitoring user to have updated privileges on the MySQL Performance Schema database.

 

  1. Click Options > Update Connection Info.
  2. Select the MySQL database, and click Next.
  3. Enter the connection and user information of the read-only MySQL database, and complete the wizard.
  4. On the DPA home page, click Action > Start Monitor next to the MySQL database.
