2.2 Supported Platforms and MySQL NDB Cluster Versions

For a list of platforms supported by MySQL Cluster Manager 1.4.8, see Supported Platforms: MySQL Cluster Manager at https://www.mysql.com/support/supportedplatforms/cluster-manager.html, or contact your Oracle representative.

MySQL Cluster Manager 1.4.8 supports the following MySQL NDB Cluster release versions:


MySQL Cluster Manager 1.4.8 only supports MySQL NDB Cluster 8.0 on an experimental basis and should not be used with MySQL NDB Cluster 8.0 in a production environment. Also, here are some examples of MySQL 8.0 features that are not supported:

  • Any authentication plugins other than mysql_native_password when connecting with mcmd.

  • The --upgrade option for mysqld.

  • The SET PERSIST statement for persisting system variables.

Prior to installation, you must obtain the correct build of MySQL Cluster Manager for your operating system and hardware platform. For Unix platforms, MySQL Cluster Manager is delivered as a Unix .tar.gz archive, whose name is in the format of mcm-1.4.8-cluster-7.6.13-linux-distro-arch.tar.gz. For Windows platforms, an MSI installer file is provided. All MySQL Cluster Manager 1.4.8 packages include MySQL NDB Cluster 7.6.13.

When selecting the appropriate installer for your operating system and hardware, keep in mind that 32-bit programs can normally be run on 64-bit platforms, but that the reverse is not true.
