The Enterprise Backup has problems with parameters with single quotes ('') in the my.cnf. Single quotes are a correct syntax and should be used for paths with spaces. See also bug #58968.

So the Enterprise Backup behaves not correctly.


datadir = '/DATADIR/instance/data' # path with single quotes

datadir = /DATADIR/instance/data # path without single quotes

How to repeat:
Use  ptathes with single quotes on the parameters datadir, innodb_log_group_home_dir, innodb_data_home_dir or innodb_data_file_path

Suggested fix:
Enterprise Backups should correctly parse the my.cnf.

What exact version of MySQL Enterprise Backup do you use?

It is version 3.5.2 .

May be related to bug #57824 (that part that quoting does not help).

Thank you for the report.

Verified as described using version 3.5.4

With version 3.6 bug is not repeatable.

This bugs is not reproducible in MEB 3.6.1 (Verified by Jothir) and hence closing it.
