i was now searching the whole web but can't find any solution for my problem. I have an MySql Server, this is my Master and installed Version is 5.5.

My Slave has Version 5.6.

Show Slave Status on the Slave says that everything works well but i got some errors in the logs and no data will be replicated from master to slave.

 [Warning] Neither --relay-log nor --relay-log-index were used; so replication may break when this MySQL server acts as a slave and has his hostname changed!! Please use '--relay-log=***-relay-bin' to avoid this problem.

here is my slave status

This status looks fine but when i add some data to the master nothing happend to the slave. I read a lot and the devs from mysql says that an replication from 5.5 to 5.6 is possible... So what did i do wrong ....

i think it is a problem wit @master_binlog_checksum... but how can i handle this?

i also deactivated the check

mysql> SHOW VARIABLES LIKE '%check%';
| Variable_name             | Value |
| binlog_checksum           | NONE  |
| check_proxy_users         | OFF   |

| innodb_checksum_algorithm | crc32 |

| slave_sql_verify_checksum | ON    |
| unique_checks             | ON    |
12 rows in set (0,00 sec)


ps: sorry for my bad english

  • Master_Host: *** are you hiding this information or it is really like this? What if you do something to the slave (i know it sounds strange), but it just replicates to the master? ;-) Jan 20, 2017 at 19:11
  • Hi, yes i really hiding some inforamtion. No i think it isn't possible that i replicate to the master.

Your output indicated you have 5.7.17 as the slave version (not 5.6 as you indicated). You can't replicate more than one major version difference as the slave make assumptions that the master knows about (e.g. system variable binlog_checksum).

Might be time to update your master version.
