See: https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/8.0/en/server-system-variables.html#sysvar_admin_address

These days we want as much as possible to be dynamic. this is a new setting in 8.0 and disabled by default. If we want to enable it afterwards we can not without restarting the server.

How to repeat:
Use of the admin port is good as administrative access can be separated from user access, but this is disabled by default. Turning on doesn't work as the setting is not dynamic.

Suggested fix:
Please allow this setting to be changed dynamically, or at least set dynamically if not already configured.
