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,

How to repeat:

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.
