I have 2 MySQL Fabric clusters running on both RedHat 6.5 & Centos 6.5 - all functions correctly, however when I try to connect using Workbench on my windows machine 7 (64bit) to access the cluster, I get 2 different error messages 
   1. when I enter the group_id in options
      "Unexpected error while connecting to fabric node."
   2. with no group_id specified.
      "Unexpected error on fabric operation: group lookup_groups"
I have screenshots of the error messages.
Mysql version:
   mysql  Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.6.21, for Linux (x86_64)
mysql-utilities version (server): 1.5.3
mysql-utilities (windows)       : 1.5.3 

How to repeat:
I have a network (Redhat) Fabric cluster, and a local PC Generated (Centos) Fabric cluster. Both give the same error.

Suggested fix:

Please check version 6.3.3. Thanks.

The lastest version of MySQL Workbench 6.3.3 too is not working for fabric connection. No error is been prompted. The bug still exists.

Hi Team,

I've updated the Workbench to 6.3.6. Still not able to connect to fabric.

Thank you for the feedback.
I'm not seeing the original issue reported, but seeing issue reported by [2 Jun 2015 20:45] Naresh Mote.

There's a statement in Relnote of MySQL Workbench 6.3.9.

> Dropped Fabric support.


Should this issue's status be "Won't Fix" or "Unsupported" ?
