MySQL NDB Cluster 8.0  /  NDB Cluster Programs  /  ndb_setup.py — Start browser-based Auto-Installer for NDB Cluster (DEPRECATED)

5.26 ndb_setup.py — Start browser-based Auto-Installer for NDB Cluster (DEPRECATED)

Note

This feature is deprecated and should be avoided. It is subject to removal in a future version of NDB Cluster.

ndb_setup.py starts the NDB Cluster Auto-Installer and opens the installer's Start page in the default Web browser.

Important

This program is intended to be invoked as a normal user, and not with the mysql, system root or other administrative account.

This section describes usage of and program options for the command-line tool only. For information about using the Auto-Installer GUI that is spawned when ndb_setup.py is invoked, see The NDB Cluster Auto-Installer (NDB 7.5) (No longer supported).

Usage

All platforms:

ndb_setup.py [options]

Additionally, on Windows platforms only:

setup.bat [options]

The following table includes all options that are supported by the NDB Cluster installation and configuration program ndb_setup.py. Additional descriptions follow the table.
