Foreign Key issue creating SCM repository in MySQL database

Installing Cloudera Manager Standard edition and a MySQL database on different (virtual) servers.

When the SCM service is started, several .ddl scripts are executed but it fails with a foreign key constraint error.

 

Cloudera Manager server

# uname -r

# cat /etc/redhat-release

All done, your SCM database is configured correctly!

After this error there are Java errors and the SCM services can't be started.

Re: Foreign Key issue creating SCM repository in MySQL database

I am having the same issue, any updates on this?

Re: Foreign Key issue creating SCM repository in MySQL database

[ Edited ]

I have a theory. I beleive the script assume you are running myisam which does not enforce Foreign Keys all the well (actualy not at all) 

 

You have two choices

1. change your default engine to myisam, not what I would prefer

 

2. alter the ddl scripts in /usr/share/cmf/schema/mysql directory

You will need to add two lines:

After the first update add 

SET FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS=0;

Then at the bottom of the file add 

SET FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS=1;

 

You will need to do that to the following files: 

00035_cmf_schema.mysql.ddl
00043_cmf_schema.mysql.ddl
04509_cmf_schema.mysql.ddl
04511_cmf_schema.mysql.ddl

 

I did this and I got through that part of the install.

Re: Foreign Key issue creating SCM repository in MySQL database

Well, never mind, you have to use MyISAM. Lots of stuff breaks if you don't. It would be nice if the table creation scripts set them to MyISAM rather than having to change the default engine to MyISAM

Re: Foreign Key issue creating SCM repository in MySQL database

Thanks for the answer. It's strange that the documentation points to InnoDB but that building the repository fails. I will test it with the ISAM.

Re: Foreign Key issue creating SCM repository in MySQL database

Using MyISAM solved the problem. I've a workaround, thx for the help.

Re: Foreign Key issue creating SCM repository in MySQL database

This is a known issue with CM and MySQL 5.6.7 or newer. We're working on it and should have it fixed in an upcoming release.

 

In general, MySQL 5.6 isn't yet supported, so the safest thing you can do is to downgrade to an older version, like 5.5. Switching to MyISAM is a really bad idea; a bunch of stuff won't work as expected down the line.
