I am following this repo (https://github.com/alexanderfefelov/docker-mysql-replication) to setup one master one slave replication. I am not able to get it working. The master seems to be OK, but the slave has the following error:

The master already created user replicator during start up, why slave also tries to create this user?

Found the issue. It was caused by the left over binlog. I externalized the binlog folder, after delete binlog folder on the host and start again, it worked.
