Bug #102690 Could not acquire management access for administration (Windows)
Submitted: 22 Feb 2021 19:53 Modified: 1 Mar 2021 12:53
Reporter: Storm Fire Email Updates:
Status: Can't repeat Impact on me:
Category:MySQL Workbench Severity:S1 (Critical)
Version:8.0.23 OS:Windows (Windows 10 Pro v1909 in Spanish)
Assigned to: CPU Architecture:Any (x64)

[22 Feb 2021 19:53] Storm Fire
When I try to access the Server Status menu, Startup/Shutdown, Server Logs, Options Files, Performance Reports and Performance Schema Setup the Workbench throws this error:

Could not acquire management access for administration:

RuntimeError: Target host is configured as Windows, but seems to be a different OS. Please review the connection settings.

This has no sense because the server is being executed in the same computer (Windows)

How to repeat:
I don't think there's a particular way to reproduce this bug. It might be something to do with the version of Windows or paths, I don't know.

I have seen a bug report of another person and the MySQL Verification Team said that they didn't see any issues doing this. This is why I say I don't know how to reproduce it. Depends on something I don't know but it's there.

Link to that report: Bug #102310 (https://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=102310)

Suggested fix:
I don't know. It seems to be something that occurs depending of some version or something.

I didn't select the server that I use but the settings for the connection are the same.

Please try to re-install with Repair option. Thanks.

How do I do that? I have reinstalled the Workbench and Server with the installer I have installed, but I'm not sure if it was downloaded correctly.

Si no está iniciado MYSQL se debe ejecutar cmd pero como administrador.
Iniciar mysql C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 8.0\bin>net start MYSQL80
