I am trying to setup the keyring_okv plugin to use with a KMIP server.
I have installed the Oracle MySQL Enterprise edition on a CentOS 7 machine.
I configured the plugin according to this page:


Which is very similar to what is documented by Oracle:

When I restart the mysqld service I see the following on the log:
2021-05-24T16:44:45.524984Z 0 [System] [MY-010116] [Server] /usr/sbin/mysqld (mysqld 8.0.25-commercial) starting as process 2399

2021-05-24T16:44:45.544351Z 0 [ERROR] [MY-011377] [Server] Plugin keyring_okv reported: 'keyring_okv initialization failure. Please check that the keyring_okv_conf_dir points to a readable directory and that the directory contains Oracle Key Vault configuration file and ssl materials. Please also check that Oracle Key Vault is up and running.'

I have checked my okvclient.ora file and it is completely open for reading.
Also the ssl folder has the keys and certificates as needed.

The my.cnf file has the entries according to the documentation.

Please help!

Hi Mr. Viana,

Thank you for your bug report.

First of all, we do not follow links other than our own. Hence, we hope that you have followed our Manual on how to set that plugin, to the last letter.

It is evident that you have not set a directory correctly or that directory or file privileges are not right for the user ID under which your MySQL Server is running. Entire branch, from the root directory to OKV directory must be readable and writeable for that user.
