Description:
the --help option shows a screen of command options for the ndbd, nbd_mgmd and ndb_mgm executables. For all of these, the help screen contains this text:

 -c, --ndb-connectstring=name
                      Set connect string for connecting to ndb_mgmd. Syntax:
                      "[nodeid=<id>;][host=]<hostname>[:<port>]". Overides
                      specifying entries in NDB_CONNECTSTRING and Ndb.cfg

The reference to Ndb.cfg should removed or rephrased to My.cnf

Ndb.cfg is now obsolete.

How to repeat:
ndbd --help | grep "Ndb.cfg"
                      specifying entries in NDB_CONNECTSTRING and Ndb.cfg
ndb_mgmd --help | grep "Ndb.cfg"
                      specifying entries in NDB_CONNECTSTRING and Ndb.cfg
ndb_mgm --help | grep "Ndb.cfg"
                      specifying entries in NDB_CONNECTSTRING and Ndb.cfg

Suggested fix:
Change to My.cnf (if still applicable)

Thanks for the bug report.

Verified as described by the submitter.

In addition, this appears to be an issue for all cluster executables to which the -c or --ndb-connectstring option applies - e.g. ndb_restore, ndb_config, ndb_show_tables, etc. - and not just those mentioned in the original bug report.

When fixing this, please note that the revised help text should refer to 'my.cnf' (all lowercase) and not 'My.cnf'.

  BUG#21585  The --help option shows a screen of command options for the ndbd,ndb_mgmd, ndb_mgm 
             and other commands related to ndb. For all of these, the help screen contains 
            "Ndb.cfg" string. Now i change the "Ndb.cfg" to "my.cnf" because "Ndb.cfg" is obsolete.
