Post Mysql - ODBC - Enable Audit problem Reply with quote
I have installed the DB audit program but when I click on 'Enable Audit' I get the error:

Code:
DB Audit's procedures failed to start. Check server log...


In the server log I only get:

Code:
DB Audit: Error: Audit settings load failed


This doesn't make me much wiser.

The server is linux using mysql 5.0.51 (latest Ubuntu version) and I connect though mysql ODBC 5.1 on Vista Basic. The ODBC works. I copied the libraries to the correct location and in the server startup I get:

Code:

So the libraries load ok. There is a password error, but I don't know what it should be? If I change it and connect with it on the localhost it works perfect.

I don't know where to look anymore... I have even set up a brand new windows XP with mysql server (5.0) and installed the audit on the same computer. This gave me exactly the same error. I have also tried the older ODBC (3.51), but also to no avail...

Anybody has a hint on where to look next?

I think your are confusing several things. DB Audit console is just a management and reporting tool. It doesn't matter which connection you are using on your Windows system, ODBC or not ODBC - this is all irrelevant. The auditing is run in the server side and that's where you have a problem.

In order to help you, I need to know a little more about your environment.

Which exact version of MySQL is on the Linux box? Is that a 32-bit or 64-bit version?

Which user account is running MySQL instance?

Did you change default password or audit settings for db_audit user? Try resetting the db_audit user password to IAUDIT and restarting the MySQL instance. Please let us know if you still get the same error or you get a different error.

I have been getting the same error message when enabling the sytem audit.
'DB Audit's procedures failed to start. Check server log...'

I'm using MySQL for Windows v5.0.51b on Windows Vista (32bit) and connect using mysql ODBC. I'm using root@localhost user to connect. I have copied the 3 dll libraries to mysql\bin folder.

When i start mysql, i got this error message

081005 15:12:01 1 Connect Access denied for user 'db_audit'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
C:\xampplite\mysql\bin\mysqld-nt.exe, Version: 5.0.51b-community-nt-log (MySQL Community Edition (GPL)). started with:
TCP Port: 3306, Named Pipe: C:/xampplite/mysql/mysql.sock
Time Id Command Argument
081005 15:13:12 1 Connect Access denied for user 'db_audit'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

I have changed the db_audit user password to IAUDIT but with failure. I also try to change password under the authentication tab in the set system audit options, but it prompted for another error and shutdown mysql service.
'Unable to change authentication settings for the audit process!'

How should i proceed?

1. Please reset the password back to IAUDIT
2. Ensure Access 'db_audit'@'localhost' account has connect privileges for the server - use this account with MySQL Query Browser to verify it can connect

Thant should do it.
