When you created the New Server Instance Profile what kind of MySQL Installation Type you did (Linux custom)?. Thanks.

Hi Miguel,

I don't understand the quetion. I don't know what is "New Server Instance Profile". My architecure is:
1.- One remote server on RHEL and MySQL Enterprise 5.5
2.- One client (my laptop ) with Ubuntu 11.04 where I have installed MysQL Workbench.

I am using Workbench for administrate mysql server via Standard TCp/IP over SSH and  selected Options, it doesn't appear.

Regards, Azucena.

On Mac OS X if /etc/my.cnf does not exist but is required by "profile" used, Workbench suggests to create new one, then says it will add new [mysqld] section. 

There is still no way to change configuration file used. It just shows "Configuration File" = /etc/my.cnf in a text field.

You need to fix the path to the configuration file in the Server Instance editor,
in the System Profile tab for your connection.

Fixed as of the upcoming 5.2.37, and here's the changelog entry:

 Under "Server Administration", the location
 of the configuration file was not visible. It is now shown
 within the configuration file label.

Thank you for the report.
