As I synchronize my database, MySQL Workbench reports:

"Operation has completed with warning. Please see logs for details."

But the Message Log just says:

Fetching schema list.
WARNING: Server configuration check

I don't know what this is supposed to mean. Is the Workbench warning me about some dubious relations I implemented in my database or is something wrong with my server? What does it want from me?

Btw: The generated script runs without errors. The database gets generated and migrated to the server.

The message is a bit unconcrete, so here's a translation: it appears when the statement 'SELECT @@lower_case_table_names' returns -1 or 0 (only for Win and OS X). So check, if case sensitivity is an issue for you.


The message you see is in fact only the title for a (potential) error dialog. The actual message is not listed in that small log. Look in the WB log (Help -> Show Log File) for the details.

  • Thanks for you answer. I think this might be the problem. I have changed lower_case_table_names in the config file to 0 and now I see in the documentation: "You should not set this variable to 0 if you are running MySQL on a system that has case-insensitive file names (such as Windows or OS X)." I'm going to check this after work and check your answer if changing that solved the problem. :) Apr 30, 2015 at 7:27
