MySQL - Quiescing Multiple Databases Using Separate Configs for Each - Issue?

mshearer

I am wanting to backup multiple MySQL databases on a single volume, I know you cannot quiesce multiple mysql dbs at once, but what I am trying to create a master config that just calls the quiesce and then unquiesce from other profiles that are set to a CONFIG_TYPE=PLUGIN so it all works out nicely.  However it is not working, maybe I am missing some core concept, but wanted to see if I could get some feedback and help.   The master config ran with just a single config runs fine with no errors...  Thanks.

OS CentOS 6.2

Snap Creator 3.6.0

MySQL Version 5.1.61

So digging around some more, I looked in the agent logs and see this error:

[Thu Jan 31 18:02:45 2013] DEBUG: Connection to stl_lab successfully established

[Thu Jan 31 18:02:45 2013] DEBUG: Executing sql command 'flush tables with read lock' for database stl_lab

[Thu Jan 31 18:02:45 2013] ERROR: [agt-00013] send: Cannot determine peer address at /</usr/local/scAgent3.6.0c/snapcreator>Net/MySQL.pm line 293

My speculation at this point is that the agent establishes a connection with the database and maintains that connection and when it tries to do the second database it just bombs out?

sivar

Were you able to resolve this?

Try supplying PORTS=3306 alone

Also, please ensure that your OS version and MYSQL version are supported per NetApp IMT.

I think you may have responded to the wrong person for this issue. I have an Informix issue not SQL.

Please consider the environment before printing this email.

Not sure I really figured this out as it is not an elegant solution, but if I start the client agent multiple times on different ports and point each database at a different agent it works just fine.
