When trying to start MySQL 8.0 it complained about partially upgraded DD. Furthermore, it complained about not being to open a table S/AD.ibd which no longer exists there because we moved it to S/AD.ibd. We reverted back to MySQL 5.6 and it seems to be running fine now. It looks like it failed during converting the .frm files into the information_schema, and I suppose this is why we were able to revert back to 5.6.

My questions:

1) Does anyone have any idea what this could be? 2) Are there MySQL diagnostic tools I can run against our 5.6 instance to see if there is inconsistent state stored about our AD.ibd table?

Here is the full log if it's of interest:

It is also possible that this binary or one of the libraries it was linked against is corrupt, improperly built, or misconfigured. This error can also be caused by malfunctioning hardware. Attempting to collect some information that could help diagnose the problem. As this is a crash and something is definitely wrong, the information collection process might fail.

Don't use / (or certain other things that could confuse the file manager) in a table name.

Perhaps you can rename it?


OK, S is the database name, AD is the table name.

No, you cannot move .ibd files around. There is critical information in ibdata1 that will get confused.

It is possible to do


(At least that was possible before 8.0. The internals of 8.0 are radically different; if such a cross-db RENAME TABLE fails, file a bug report with bugs.mysql.com )

  • S is the schema and A is the table name. I could rename it in the L schema but i'm still not sure why MySQL thinks table A still exists in the S schema. I was hoping there were diagnostic tools I could run against the MySQL instance which would shed some light on what is going on. Thanks for the response.

  • I'll try running the RENAME statement and see if the error still appears when trying to upgrade from 5.6 to 8.0. In the meantime, I'll also test out the two back-up strategies we discussed here dba.stackexchange.com/questions/210524/…
