Try to create a table space with nonexistant log group or wrong log group name and the only error message that comes back is "Failed to create TABLESPACE" without any hint *why* it actually failed.

How to repeat:
on a fresh installation try:

       ADD DATAFILE 'ts_1.dat'
       USE LOGFILE GROUP no_such_log_group
       INITIAL_SIZE 256M
       EXTENT_SIZE 128M
       ENGINE NDB;
ERROR 1525 (HY000): Failed to create TABLESPACE

> show warnings;
| Level | Code | Message                     |
| Error | 1525 | Failed to create TABLESPACE |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

Suggested fix:
Add at least a warning about the nonexistant log group
