I am trying to deploy a 2 machines MySQL NDB Cluster with the following architecture: – management node – SQL node – data node – SQL node – data node

The base operating system is Ubuntu 14.04 and the MySQL Cluster software version is 5.7.25. .

I've been following the APT repository installation method:

$ sudo apt-get install mysql-cluster-community-management-server
$ sudo apt-get install mysql-cluster-community-client
$ sudo apt-get install mysql-cluster-community-data-node
$ sudo apt-get install mysql-cluster-community-server

I configure just the first machine The management and the fisrt data node are working correctly.

ndb_mgm> show
Connected to Management Server at:
Cluster Configuration
[ndbd(NDB)] 2 node(s)
id=2    @  (mysql-5.7.25 ndb-7.5.13, starting, Nodegroup: 0)
id=3 (not connected, accepting connect from

[ndb_mgmd(MGM)] 1 node(s)
id=1    @  (mysql-5.7.25 ndb-7.5.13)

[mysqld(API)]   2 node(s)
id=4 (not connected, accepting connect from
id=5 (not connected, accepting connect from

My /var/lib/mysql-cluster/config.ini file reads as follows:






On the MySQL node the /etc/mysql/mysql.conf.d/mysqld.cnf file reads as:

pid-file        = /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid
socket          = /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
datadir         = /var/lib/mysql
log-error       = /var/log/mysql/error.log


ndb-connectstring =

my.cnf(in file reads as:

ndb-connectstring =

And this my log file /var/log/mysql/error.log:

I start the nodes by using those commands

#Management node
sudo ndb_mgmd -f /var/lib/mysql-cluster/config.ini --bind-address=

#Data node
sudo ndbd --bind-address=

#SQL node
sudo service mysql start

NOTE: I tested only the machine with IP adress

You are trying to start a cluster with 2 nodes, but only start 1 node. This is possible, but requires using a special option when starting ndbd/ndbmtd, if I remember correctly this parameter is called -no-wait-nodes. Check more in documentation. So the way you start above the cluster will wait indefinitely for another node to start.

The MySQL Server will not start since the cluster isn't started.
