      Description

      The init scripts for debian and ubuntu rely on a special user:
      'debian-sys-maint'@'localhost'
      MYADMIN="/usr/bin/mysqladmin --defaults-file=/etc/mysql/debian.cnf"

      It has three tasks:
      1. Doing some local checks starting the mysqld.
      2. Some fancy status reporting.
      3. As mysqladmin is used to shutdown, the user is used to shutdown the mysqld.

      The problem with this approach is the credentials has to be stored disjunct in the filesystem (/etc/init.d/debian.cnf). So everytime the data in the schema changes you got to fix it in the configfile.
      So at least when you i.e.

      • Create a slave from a master dump
      • After an (initial) SST in Galera
        When you miss this, the most important thing is, you are not going to stop the mysqld.
        This is some kind of silly, as you don't even need mysqladmin to stop mysqld, as SIGTERM is sufficient.

          Hehe ok, this is related to https://mariadb.atlassian.net/browse/MDEV-703.
          There is at least code to shutdown mysql but never touched.

          Issued this during upgrade 10.0.6 to 10.0.7 twice out of few dozen instances

          Manual fix http://mirzmaster.wordpress.com/2009/01/16/mysql-access-denied-for-user-debian-sys-maintlocalhost/ after this "apt-get install -f" can proceed

          A warning is better than nothing. I tried to push the debian.cnf into the datadir however the wsrep_sst_rsync is quite fussy about what it copies.

          Otto Kekäläinen,

          Are you planning to make any radical changes around this debian-sys-maint user, or should we just apply the suggested warnings?

          Elena Stepanova Yes, the whole debian-sys-maint user will be abandoned as we have transitioned to unix socket auth by default in Debian Sid.
