Description:
After connecting to a Server using 'SERVER ADMINISTRATION' option of MySQL Workbench, I can not see the information_schema and mysql databases. If connect to the same server with MySQL Administrator, this databases are shown when I click on the Catalogs option in the upper left pane. Could you please help me on this?

Many thanks in advanced,

Please, check "Show Metadata Schemata" checkbox in the Query Editor group of the SQL Editor tab in the Workbench Preferences dialog box. Use Edit > Preferences... menu item to open it. Don't forget to click "Refresh all" in the Object Browser's context menu after that.
