Running MySQL Cluster on Mac: working around a ndb_mgmd bug
A week ago we found a workaround for a bug in MySQL Cluster making it impossible to run a management node on MacOS X. Until the bug is fixed, you should use the --nodaemon option for the ndb_mgmd executable. Both MySQL Cluster v6.3 and v7.0 are affected.
Currently, I’m starting the management node like this:
cd /opt/mysql/mysql ;
./libexec/ndb_mgmd -f /opt/mysql/config.ini \
--nodaemon 2>/dev/null 1>&2 </dev/null &
Obviously, you’ll want to change the paths.
Eventually, the bug will get fixed, but until then you got no excuse to not try MySQL Cluster on Mac!
