Status: Closed Impact on me:
Category:MySQL Server: Packaging Severity:S1 (Critical)
Version:6.0.4-alpha OS:Any (Linux + Windows)
Assigned to: Joerg Bruehe CPU Architecture:Any

The "instance manager" is discontinued in 6.0.
It is removed from the code, some scripts in the source tree, and from the Makefiles.
This was WL#4085.

However, it is still listed in the package descriptions for
- Windows
- Linux RPM files

As a consequence, creating such packages fails.

How to repeat:
Try a build.

Suggested fix:
I will fix the RPM spec file, delete all references to "mysqlmanager".

Corresponding actions are needed in (at least)
- the XML files controlling Windows,
- MySQLInstanceConfig.exe

I removed the mysqlmanager* files from mysql_server_fragment_6.0.xml and *6.0_x64.xml, and the InstanceManager component from mysql_server_6.0.xml and *6.0_x64.xml.

      Remove the Instance Manager ("mysqlmanager") from the spec file.
      This fixes bug#33469 as far as Linux is concerned.

Status is "verified" as far as Windows GUI configurator is concerned.

The push listed in this bug affects only the Linux RPM spec file.

For the Windows XML packaging description, a fix was done by Daniel.
It made the Windows packaging proceed.
Some Windows packaging guru should verify that it is complete and proper.

Docs note: I have removed the mysqlmanager.8 manpage and it will no longer appear in the man-6.0 package of manpages.

The code change to mysql_server_6.0.xml and mysql_server_fragment_6.0.xml correctly removed the "Instance Manager" from the 6.0 package(s).

This is fixed in 6.0.4-alpha.

I just verified the Windows package contents: no "mysqlmanager" any more.
For Linux, see the commit message of Dec 21 - this is contained in 6.0.4.
