MySQL 5.6 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  DROP SERVER Statement

13.1.27 DROP SERVER Statement

DROP SERVER [ IF EXISTS ] server_name

Drops the server definition for the server named server_name. The corresponding row in the mysql.servers table is deleted. This statement requires the SUPER privilege.

Dropping a server for a table does not affect any FEDERATED tables that used this connection information when they were created. See Section 13.1.16, “CREATE SERVER Statement”.

DROP SERVER causes an implicit commit. See Section 13.3.3, “Statements That Cause an Implicit Commit”.

DROP SERVER is not written to the binary log, regardless of the logging format that is in use.

In MySQL 5.6.11 only, gtid_next must be set to AUTOMATIC before issuing this statement. (Bug #16062608, Bug #16715809, Bug #69045)
