Before starting the MySQL Cluster Manager agent, you should make any necessary
changes to the
[mcmd] section of the agent
configuration file, supplied with MySQL Cluster Manager as
etc/mcmd.ini in the installation directory.
On Linux and similar operating systems, you can edit this file in
place; on Windows, it is recommended that you save a copy of this
file to a convenient location for which the path does not contain
any spaces, such as

The version of this file that is supplied with MySQL Cluster Manager reads similarly to what is shown here:

Prior to MySQL Cluster Manager 1.1.1, the
[mcmd] section of
the configuration file used the heading

this reason, you should change any
[mysql-proxy] section headings in existing
configuration files to
[mcmd], when upgrading
to MySQL Cluster Manager 1.2.3.
A minimal agent configuration file as used in production might look like this:
