MySQL Replication  /  ...  /  Adding a Binary Log Based Source to a Multi-Source Replica

2.5.4 Adding a Binary Log Based Source to a Multi-Source Replica

These steps assume that you have enabled binary logging on the replication source server using --log-bin, the replica is using TABLE based replication metadata repositories, and that you have enabled a replication user and noted the current binary log position. You need to know the current MASTER_LOG_FILE and MASTER_LOG_POSITION.

Use the CHANGE MASTER TO statement to configure a replication channel for each source on the replica (see Section 5.2, “Replication Channels”). The FOR CHANNEL clause is used to specify the channel. For example, to add source1 and source2 as sources to the replica, use the mysql client to issue the CHANGE MASTER TO statement twice on the replica, like this:

mysql> CHANGE MASTER TO MASTER_HOST="source1", MASTER_USER="ted", MASTER_PASSWORD="password", \
MASTER_LOG_FILE='source1-bin.000006', MASTER_LOG_POS=628 FOR CHANNEL "source_1";
mysql> CHANGE MASTER TO MASTER_HOST="source2", MASTER_USER="ted", MASTER_PASSWORD="password", \
MASTER_LOG_FILE='source2-bin.000018', MASTER_LOG_POS=104 FOR CHANNEL "source_2";

For the full syntax of the CHANGE MASTER TO statement and other available options, see CHANGE MASTER TO Statement.
