Description:
Installed Mysql 8.0.21 using the MSI installer. Configuration for seed innodb Cluster was made.
The Installer only set Firewall Rule for port 33060 on local host Windows Server 2016.

Subsequently, other machines Mysql instances could not be added via dba.addInstance()
Cloneing through addInstance() parsed Connection errors to port 33061 on slave instances Mysql error log file.

Please update MSI...

The Firewall Rule for port 33061  Inbound must be added by Installer.

Hi,
Normally I don't think our installer should touch the windows firewall at all as that's something user should do alone but if we are already doing it then we have to do it properly so I'll verify the bug.

all best
